Canadian Donation and Transplant Research Program
The Canadian Donation and Transplant Research Program (CDTRP) – formerly the Canadian National Transplant Research Program (CNTRP) – is a national research network whose mission is to increase organ and tissue donation in Canada and enhance the survival and quality of life of Canadians living with a transplant.
The CDTRP was established in 2013, CIHR and its partners provided $13.85M to support the CDTRP’s formation, operations and research activities. The CDTRP comprises over 200 investigators, students, collaborators, patient partners and knowledge-users at 30 sites across the country.
The renewed funding of $3,300,000 will help the CDTRP continue to advance research to increase the availability of transplants, improve the long-term survival and quality of life of transplant patients, and integrate and coordinate transplantation research nationwide.
Of this $3,300,000, CIHR will invest a total of $2,400,000 over three years. CIHR partners will provide the remaining $900,000.
