Additional funding available for the CNTRP Research Grant Competition as the UHN Multi-Organ Transpl
We are very pleased to announce that the Multi-Organ Transplant Program at the University Health Network (UHN) is joining the CNTRP Research Innovation Grant Competition, that was launched in April to fund new research pilot projects in the CNTRP. Through this important partnership, the UHN will provide an additional $25,000 to fund the top ranked unfunded UHN researcher in this competition to bring their research into the national structure of the CNTRP.
The APPLICATION DEADLINE for the competition is AUGUST 18, 2015 and details are available at www.cntrp.ca/grant_competitions
The UHN partnership is in addition to the support received from Astellas Pharma Canada and the Alberta Transplant Institute. We believe this new partnership is an exciting opportunity to support new and innovative research in Toronto and link this research with centres and researchers across the country through the CNTRP. We strongly encourage other programs and centres across the country to consider partnering on these competitions as it provides an opportunity to support important research and bring new ideas into the CNTRP.
