New publication describes the structure, philosophy and accomplishments of the CNTRP
The CNTRP is featured in a recently published article in the journal Transplantation that highlights the structure of our national program and the early accomplishments of the network. We are excited to promote our novel structure with the international research community and highlight the important work we are doing together to increase donation and improve outcomes for transplant recipients.
We encourage all CNTRP members to include the following reference in your publications when mentioning the CNTRP:

Abstract: The Canadian National Transplant Research Program, launched in 2013 with funding from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research and partners, bridges research in the fields of solid organ transplant, hematopoietic cell transplant, and organ donation. We describe the philosophy, structure, accomplishments, and challenges faced by the Canadian National Transplant Research Program to expand on facilitators and overcome roadblocks to successfully developing a transdisciplinary national research structure.
