Research Grants

Akebia recognizes that independent research, such as Investigator-Sponsored Research (ISR), has the potential to contribute to science and medicine as well as improve the treatment of disease, patient outcomes, and the quality of healthcare.

Research grants support independently initiated research that is aligned with our clinical and non-clinical areas of interest and intended to contribute knowledge to the medical community. In general, research grants include clinical research, non-clinical research, registries and other datasets intended to explore a scientific hypothesis or question.

Current Areas of Interest

  • Studies to further describe and characterize the mechanism of action of Auryxia (ferric citrate)
  • Effect of Auryxia on markers of anemia and/or mineral bone disorder across stages of CKD including different modalities of dialysis therapy
  • Impact of Auryxia on health economics, outcomes and patient/caregiver burden in CKD
  • Broadening the knowledge of the impact of iron deficiency anemia and hyperphosphatemia on patient outcomes and current treatment practice patterns

How to Apply

A committee will review proposals on a regular basis based on numerous criteria including scientific merit availability of support, safety, legal, regulatory, and ethical considerations. Akebia may provide funding and other forms of support, such as clinical trial materials or drug to institutions with academic and/or community-based scientists and clinicians. Akebia does not provide grants to individuals.

Patient Resources

We recognize that many patients today face financial obstacles that keep them from accessing important medications. We believe these medications should be available to every patient who needs them. In the United States, we have put in place a patient services program that provides one-on-one support to help communicate individual benefits and available resources.
