CST & CNTRP launch new Research Innovation Grant Competition
The Canadian Society of Transplantation (CST) and the Canadian National Transplant Research Program (CNTRP) are pleased to announce the launch of a new Transplant Research Grant Competition. The CST is providing $50,000 to support two new pilot operating grants focusing on the translation of enhanced non-invasive diagnostics and monitoring into clinical practice.
“This opportunity will help open the doors for grant recipients to be recognized for their ground-breaking research that will have an impact on clinical practices and improve patient outcomes,” says Dr. Steven Paraskevas, President of the CST. “Translational medicine is at the forefront for members of the CST and these operating grants are reflective of this. The CST provides support to the transplantation community through additional grants and awards and we are thrilled to add the CST CNTRP Research Innovation Grants to the list.”
“The CST is a founding partner of the CNTRP and has extensive member engagement across all CNTRP initiatives”, says Dr. Lori West, Director of the CNTRP and Interim Director of the Alberta Transplant Institute. “We are very grateful for the ongoing enthusiastic support from the CST as we continue to work together to address the critical gaps and barriers to effective transplantation for Canadians.”
