Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program, Trillium Gift of Life Network – part of Ontario Health, and the Canadian Liver Foundation partner to expand donation and transplantation research funding opportunities
The Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program (CDTRP), Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) – part of Ontario Health and the Canadian Liver Foundation are delighted to announce an exciting new development in our longstanding partnership.
Trillium Gift of Life Network – part of Ontario Health will be providing approximately $400,000 of charitable funds to support new research grants, including through the CDTRP Innovation Grant Program. Administratively facilitated through the existing CDTRP-CLF partnership, the grants will be directed to the top-ranked but otherwise-unfunded researchers based at Ontario institutions, to advance organ donation and transplantation research.
Over the next 5 years, this will provide support to many new research opportunities that will move Canada closer towards the One Transplant for Life vision. Achieving this vision, to fulfill every donation opportunity and turn transplant into a cure, promises to impact the the lives of those who are waiting for a transplant and improve the quality of life for transplant recipients.
Capitalizing on the CDTRP’s agility, we are pleased to begin integrating this new partnership into the competition currently in progress, offering 1 additional award to Ontario-based researchers this year.
Warmest thanks to the Trillium Gift of Life Network – part of Ontario Health and the Canadian Liver Foundation for their ongoing collaboration and shared vision for improving organ donation and transplantation through research in Canada.
