Dr. Shuvo Roy is an Engineer who works at the University of California San Francisco. His life mission, and the goal of the Kidney Project is to create a surgically-implanted, independently operational “bio”-artificial kidney to treat kidney failure. He talks with Lori about his grand vision of designing an implantable kidney, the timeline for clinical trials, and what he has learned so far. Listen and feel the hope that one day we may have a kidney made in the lab, readily available and the size of a coffee cup!
Update: Due to a miscommunication, Lori refers to Dr. Shuvo Roy as Dr. Roy Shuvo in this podcast. Our apologies to Dr. Roy for any confusion this may have caused.
