2017 CNTRP Astellas Research Innovation Grant competition.

This annual competition supports new peer-reviewed pilot research projects that align with CNTRP’s overall objective to increase organ and tissue donation in Canada and enhance the survival and quality of life of Canadians living with a transplant with the ultimate goal of improving patient care. This competition is open to both CNTRP investigators and non-members and is a great way to bring researchers into our national structure.

The primary area of focus for this competition is to catalyze new translational focused research in donation and transplantation to improve health outcomes. These projects must be new stand-alone studies that will be integrated into the CNTRP and be used to generate preliminary data to support further investigation.

Six grants of $30,000 each will be available to fund peer-reviewed pilot projects at the national level in 2017. The ATI is partnering with the CNTRP to provide an additional three grants to the top unfunded Alberta applications in this competition.

Application Deadline: October 19, 2017.
