Dr. Lok fondly remembers Mr. Alexander Epstein, a long time dialysis patient of hers. Mr. Epstein participated in research studies to help understand some of the problems patients with end stage kidney disease have and to help find solutions. He was passionate about increasing awareness for kidney transplantation and furthering research on improving cardiac conditions in patients with kidney disease. It is because of Mr. Epstein's generous donation that PISCES was possible and initiated. (link to PISCES). We honour his memory by continuing to pursue patient oriented research for patients with kidney disease.
