An effort led by UCSF bioengineer Shuvo Roy to create an implantable artificial kidney for dialysis patients has been selected as one of the first projects to undergo more timely and collaborative review at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Dr. Roy's project is one of three selected from over 30 applications to the FDA's Innovation Pathway 2.0 program, which aims to shorten the time and cost of development, assessment and review of medical devices.
