The Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program (CDTRP) is a national research network designed to increase organ and tissue donation in Canada and enhance the survival and quality life of Canadians living with a transplant. CDTRP is divided into 5 Themes that focus on donation and transplantation research. Each Theme is led by an Academic Lead, supported by an Academic Co-Lead, a Patient Co-Lead and a group of expert advisors, along with a Theme Manager to help coordinate and enhance communications and collaboration across the CDTRP. Learn more on research themes here.


Providing resources to meet diverse education, training and career development needs, this platform incorporates academic programs to give trainees a broad overview of knowledge and issues related to the practice of donation and transplantation while providing them with tools on how to be better communicators, managers, scholars and professionals via webinars, mentoring programs and in-person meetings. Learn more on the Education and Training Platform.


A strong, central feature of the CDTRP, the Patient, Family and Donor (PFD) Researcher Partnership Platform gives patients, caregivers and living donors a voice while offering an environment to collaborate between families, investigators, project leads and CDTRP Themes. Nationwide patient, family and donor participation is a research priority in all CDTRP projects, contributing to the transfer of knowledge and positive impact on transplantation and donation in Canada.
