Glomerular Disease Collaborative Network

INTRODUCTION

The Glomerular Disease Collaborative Network (GDCN) was established in 1985 as a means of enhancing communication and research efforts between community nephrology offices and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine. The purpose of the GDCN is to learn more about causes and pathogenesis of glomerular diseases, as well as to find the most effective treatments for patients with these diseases.

The co-founders and co-directors of the GDCN are Ronald J. Falk, MD, Allen Brewster Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, and J. Charles Jennette, MD, Brinkhous Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, and Professor of Medicine, Department of Medicine, both of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

There is no fee to become a member physician or clinic. Any interested parties should contact the gdcnunc@med.unc.edu.
