The CDTRP is celebrating its 10th anniversary!

We are proud to launch the 10th Anniversary Celebrations of the inception of the Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program (CDTRP), formerly know as the Canadian National Transplant Research Program (CNTRP). Indeed, year 2023 marks the creation of the network conceived, developed and led by two exceptional women you know well: Dr. Lori West and Dr. Marie-Josée Hébert.

A bit of history

With support from the Canadian Institute of Health Research’s (CIHR) Transplantation Research Program, the Canadian National Transplant Research Program was launched in April 2013. It received a five-year grant from CIHR and its partners to support the formation, operations and research activities, and was renewed in 2018 for an additional three years.

Here we are, 10 years later, not a little proud of the accomplishments and partnerships developed with the important actors of the organ donation and transplantation community. It is therefore an appropriate time to celebrate these great years!
