Priya Visweswaran Balakrishnan, MD, the Principal Investigator, a nephrologist and internist, with clinical and basic sciences research experience, and survivor of multi-organ failure and near-death experience, feels she was born to reverse kidney failure.
In 2001, immediately after completing her renal fellowship, she sought advice from her mother, Lalitha, in 2001, about opening her own dialysis unit.
Lalitha was horrified and urged Priya instead to try and do everything she could to prevent patients from going on dialysis, rather than to profit from it. When, another's dialysis patient accidentally bled to death on dialysis, it further inspired her to fight kidney failure.
In 2007, Priya received bad news when admitted herself for multi-organ failure, extensive bilateral kidney scarring and near-death, which made her discover the patented and public protocol.
Every distinguished consultant or collaborator of Team Immortality, is voluntarily a part of the effort to reverse Kidney Failure.
