Dr. Jay Venkatesan, CEO, Angion, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, discusses the company's work in organ self-repair and their initial focus in the nephrology space.  The company's lead candidate ANG-3777 is a small molecule that mimics a protein to stimulate this self-repair and regeneration following injury.
