KidneyX: Redesign Dialysis, Phase 2
Phase 2 receives 70 submissions from experts across bioengineering, biotechnology, medical devices, nephrology, and more.
The second phase of Redesign Dialysis sought prototype solutions, or components of solutions, that can replicate normal kidney functions or improve dialysis access. Participants could compete in the second phase even if they did not submit a solution in the first phase. Prototypes needed to address at least one of the following areas: blood filtration, electrolyte homeostasis, volume regulation, toxin removal and secretion, filtrate drainage and connectivity, or dialysis access.
Up to three winners will be announced later this year. Each winner will be awarded $500,000 and have the opportunity to present their solutions to the broader kidney innovation community at the KidneyX Summit, planned for Spring 2020.
