There are 2 comments on Weining Lu, Kidney Researcher, Named BU Innovator of the Year

  1. I was privileged to have first read Dr. Lu’s proposal when submitted to Pfizer’s CTI given my role as the Site Head. I read his proposal and said to my colleagues – “this work will turn into a much needed drug for CKD patients”. So happy to see the progress on the path to patients. Weining and Steve make an amazing team.

  2. I saw first hand the devastating results of kidney disease experienced by my husband.I was happy to read of this possible help for those with this chronic affliction.
