Current Prize Competitions
The Artificial Kidney Prize builds on past KidneyX competitions but is distinct in its goal to accelerate the development of continuous kidney replacement therapies as transformational treatment options beyond current dialysis methods. For this competition, artificial kidneys may be considered as wearable or implantable and developed as a bioengineered, xenotransplant, chimera, or other non-human organ platform that has not yet been conceived, as options for kidney replacement therapy. With the Artificial Kidney Prize, HHS and ASN intend to stimulate the market for further kidney health innovation, drawing greater participation and capital.
Track Two of this competition, Components and tools that enable the development of an artificial kidney , solicits applications that develop enabling tools from fields such as regenerative medicine, cellular engineering, systems biology, and/or synthetic biology to solve a specific challenge for developing an artificial kidneys platform, such as bioartificial, biomechanical, non-human animal and other implantable or wearable platforms for kidney replacement therapy.
Submission Period: August 10, 2022 - January 28, 2023
