A global competition to accelerate the development of artificial kidneys toward human clinical trials

The Artificial Kidney Prize is KidneyX’s first fully dedicated effort toward artificial kidney advancement, with initial phases offering up to $10 million in prizes. This multiphase competition builds on past KidneyX competitions but is distinct in its goal: to accelerate the development of continuous kidney replacement therapies that provide transformational treatment options beyond current dialysis methods. Entrants are encouraged to address one or more priority topic areas; however, the competition remains open to solutions that advance artificial kidneys in other ways.

Explore entrant resources

The Artificial Kidney Prize has curated resources for entrants across a range of topics — from exploring the state of kidney health innovation to incorporating the patient perspective to navigating regulatory processes.
