37 million Americans and more than 850 million people worldwide live with kidney diseases. Current treatment methods have not changed significantly in more than 60 years, and innovation is urgently needed. The KidneyX Summit is the premier event that highlights efforts to create better options for people with kidney diseases.
We are thrilled to officially announce the six Phase 1 winners of the Artificial Kidney Prize, who will each receive $650,000. The global competition received 38 submissions for component and integrated prototype solutions ranging from miniaturized technologies and filtration solutions to approaches for xenotransplantation and regenerative medicine.
