The Kidney Innovation Accelerator—or KidneyX—is a patient-driven public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the American Society of Nephrology designed to accelerate the development of drugs, devices, biologics, and digital health tools spanning prevention, diagnostics, and treatment of kidney diseases.

The 2019 KidneyX Summit will introduce new voices and perspectives to the kidney space and seeks to improve collaboration and communication across the nephrology community. This event will be a forum to bring insights from a variety of fields outside of the traditional nephrology community and to encourage investment partnerships for innovative solutions to improve how kidney diseases are prevented, diagnosed, and treated.

The summit will include panel discussions with patients, innovators, and keynotes from industry leaders and government representatives from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the HHS Office of the Chief Technology Officer, the Food and Drug Administration, and the National Institutes of Health.

Additionally, winners of KidneyX’s inaugural prize competition, Redesign Dialysis Phase I, which asked innovators to create designs of possible solutions or solution components that can replicate normal kidney functions and improve patient quality of life—will have the opportunity to present their winning submissions.

Together—through KidneyX—we plan to accelerate the pace of innovation in the development of disruptive approaches to kidney care and the development of new medical products, leading to solutions that will improve the lives of the millions of people worldwide affected by kidney diseases. We hope you will consider joining us in this effort.
