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 announced the six prize recipients for phase one of the Artificial Kidney Prize, innovators focused on advancing wearable or implanted artificial kidneys. In addition to these prize announcements, attendees heard from kidney innovation leaders such as Outset Medical's CEO, Leslie Trigg, and HHS Assistant Secretary of Health, Dr. Rachel Levine, MD.
