Dr Kiran sees a bright future prospect in the field of nephrology with the advent of wearable artificial kidneys, kidney transplantation with minimal or no immunosuppression and minimal side effects. Stem cells in kidney regeneration and transplantation, ABO incompatible kidney transplantation in large scale, paired kidney donation would change the way in which transplantation is done.
