Kidney Week

Advances in Research Conference: Regenerative Medicine and Bioartificial Kidneys [In-Person]

Advances in Research Conference: Regenerative Medicine and Bioartificial Kidneys (In-Person)

November 02, 2022 | 07:00 AM - 05:00 PM

Location: W230, Orange County Convention Center, West Building

Session Description

ESKD is a global health problem for which therapeutic options carry high morbidity and mortality. This program describes the current state of research for innovative therapies to treat kidney failure, including regenerative efforts such as cell-based and organoid-based therapies and the development of various types of artificial kidneys.

This in-person content will be recorded and made available in the virtual meeting platform through December 21, 2022.

This early program requires a separate registration, and there is no onsite registration.
