UKRO Receives $100,000 Contribution from Kidney Doctor Krishna J. Mohan, M.D., to Fund New Kidney Disease Research Center at the Keck School of Medicine of USC
Date:9/30/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

UKRO (University Kidney Research Organization), a Los Angeles–based nonprofit charity supporting kidney disease research, is extremely pleased to announce a generous contribution of $100,000 from Dr. Krishna J. Mohan of Mohan Dialysis Center of Covina, Inc. This contribution is an exciting step forward in the establishment of the USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center (KRC) on USC's Health Sciences Campus, which is being jointly funded by the Keck School of Medicine of USC and UKRO.

"An estimated 26 millions people in America suffer from chronic kidney disease. If we are to lift the scourge of this epidemic and the staggering financial burdens it imposes, the answers lie in research. Dr. Mohan’s gift brings hope to kidney patients everywhere and is a terrific, meaningful, and generous contribution to our campaign to fulfill our financial commitment to the new USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center," said UKRO president Kenneth Kleinberg. "As a physician in internal medicine and nephrology, Dr. Mohan understands the vital necessity of cutting-edge kidney research and the importance of collaboration between scientists working in a variety of fields, including stem cells and organ regeneration—research to which the KRC will be wholly dedicated. We are deeply appreciative of his support."

UKRO made an initial multimillion-dollar pledge to support the establishment of the KRC, which will conduct both basic and applied research programs with the goal of becoming a premier national kidney research center. The Keck School of Medicine of USC will match the amount that UKRO has pledged for the KRC.

The KRC will be operated under the auspices
