KidneyX Artificial Kidney Prize: Technical Webinar

The KidneyX Artificial Kidney Prize is a competition to accelerate the development of artificial kidneys toward human clinical trials. In Phase 1, the Artificial Kidney Prize seeks component or integrated prototype solutions that enable and advance the functionality, effectiveness, and/or reliability of artificial kidneys. Entrants are encouraged to address one or more priority topic areas; however, the competition remains open to solutions that advance artificial kidneys in other ways.

In this virtual session, leading experts will provide solvers with an overview of fundamental kidney functions. They will also discuss technical design considerations for components or systems that effectively replicate these functions. Speakers will be announced soon.

Success in the Artificial Kidney Prize will require a breadth of expertise, and KidneyX encourages entrants to consider collaborating with each other or expanding existing teams. The growing solver community includes experts in blood filtration, regenerative technologies, sensors, and more. The full list of solvers and contact information will be shared regularly with community members throughout the competition to help entrants make new connections.
