NEPTUNE is able to share collected data, biological specimens and infrastructure for research in Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD), and Membranous Nephropathy (MN). Ancillary studies must be reviewed and approved by the NEPTUNE Ancillary Review Committee (ARC) and the Steering Committee (SC) before inception of research activities or submission of proposal for external funding.
