Shuvo Roy is developing an artificial kidney at UCSF that could revolutionize care for millions of people around the world:
"Look at the impact. There are 600,000 people who have kidney failure in this country, two million worldwide. Less than 20,000 transplants are performed every year. And on the waiting list today, which is the sickest of the sick, there are almost 100,000 people. If we can deliver on this, we can provide an alternative therapy and a treatment option that doesn’t exist today for the vast majority of people who are now forced to rely on dialysis."
