Executive Summary

This initiative proposes to establish kidney bioengineering technology incubator, Technology Hub Incubator for the Kidney (THINK), to act as a catalyst for innovation and accelerate research discoveries in kidney bioengineering. Building upon recent advances in regenerative medicine in the kidney, but recognizing new challenges, THINK aims to address unmet needs in therapies for chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease through a systems approach to generate kidneys for transplantation, supporting research, innovation, and education, outreach and community building.
