Exploring Future Prospects for Kidney Patients

HDU Advisory Board Member Fokko P. Wieringa is interviewed in this article from Innovation Origins on the development of a portable dialysis device to a fully implantable artificial organ. Research by imec at Holst Centre and the Dutch Kidney Foundation opens the door to new solutions.
