Targeted Impact


Proof of concept achieved. Data can be sent to the blockchain while a smart contract assesses whether matches are possible. An event notification occurs when a match is made. Next stage is a prototype and clinical trials.

Registered Entity



Impact Areas

Improve equity in healthcare access to minority and low-socioeconomic status patients. Rectify the mistrust of the institution of medicine prevalent in minority patient populations.

Quantifiable Impact?

Beyond the financial impact, renewed trust in an institution that has disenfranchised minority individuals will have a ripple effect in terms of improving adherence to treatment and doctors' orders.

Problem - Gap

There are well-documented disparities in allocation of donated kidneys.

Use Case: Why use blockchain or other technologies?

Blockchain integration into the kidney paired donation paradigm endows transparency without compromising confidentiality in a decentralized environment. The transparency of the Kidner-hosted distributed ledger is critical for improving trust in organ allocation, which historically has disadvantaged certain demographics.

Team Members

The Project Kidner team is a multinational cohort. Our team works toward our shared mission of equity in kidney paired donation from France, Germany, the United Kingdom and United States. We take pride in our decentralized organizational structure because it enables us to more adeptly leverage the multilingual and multifarious expertises of our volunteers.
