Saving Lives

Shashank Moddhia ('05 MS, Biomedical Engineering) is founder and CEO of The Renal Project, a Mumbai-based company that aims to revolutionize the availability and delivery of dialysis therapy.

The Renal Project opened in 2019 with a single dialysis center. Since then, it has grown to include 31 centers throughout remote areas of India—along with a huge network of nephrologists, technicians, and staff—that provide over 5,000 dialysis sessions per month.

“Saving lives has just become our routine. It's something we're very proud of,” Moddhia says. “A lot of times, our patients have run out of options and don't have the means to go far to get the right treatment. But we're right there, ready to help.”
