10Where will the clinical trials take place?

According to the Kidney project, clinical trials will take place throughout the United States and will not be divulged till full approval is granted. However, the first trial will most probably be in San Francisco, CA or Nashville where the main Kidney project teams are based. The team says that if funding targets are met, then trials will be fully funded. Trials will only be available after the first pre trials are over.
