15 winners in the "Redesign Dialysis" competition, each receiving $75K to keep on truckin'. Here's the article: https://www.kidneynews.org/policy-advocacy/leading-edge/kidneyx-summit-begins-today-with-announcement-of-redesign-dialysis-prize-competition-phase-1-winners.

One of the winners is the Artificial Kidney Project. https://pharm.ucsf.edu/kidney?fbclid=IwAR17lOCfMJllk_04Ymz11ZZaI-zY0hZM3MPyxb2teiy9Xt-bzZCQ3Ljj-eU.,  https://www.facebook.com/ArtificialKidney/.

Here's a follow-on article that talks about using some of the technology of the artificial kidney to improve hemodialysis (sort of a stop-gap I guess until the kidney is ready to go), but I don't actually understand it -- scroll down to where they talk about "iHemo": https://pharmacy.ucsf.edu/news/2019/05/kidney-project-earns-kidneyx-award-make-home-dialysis-better-patients?fbclid=IwAR1bVtmP3WJrs5GXkleaUwCUhIpuuJjHrstHjoQe9h29sL9op_Uwqg9FlF0 .
