The Kidney Research National Dialogue, supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, asked the scientific community to formulate and prioritize research objectives that would improve our understanding of kidney function and disease. High-priority objectives for AKI were identified, including enhancing training and collaborative opportunities, improving phenotyping and development of clinical tools, expanding our understanding of the pathophysiology and interaction between injury and reparative processes, and identifying determinants of long-term outcomes. Research in animal models must be translated to improve diagnosis and treatment of patients. The objectives identified by the Kidney Research National Dialogue provide the research community with future opportunities for improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of people with AKI.
