MXene – Standing in for a kidney
For more than 3 million people around the world, kidney failure is a life-altering diagnosis. While about 17 percent of people in the U.S. with end-stage kidney disease are now getting transplants, the average time spent waiting is 3-5 years. These people spend several hours multiple times each week attached to a dialysis machine that cleans the toxins from their blood.
