Congratulations to Dr. Gunaratnam and the Gunaratnam lab for being one of the thirteen recipients of the 2016 CNTRP Research Innovation Grants! The grant was awarded for the study of Kidney Injury Molecule-1 (KIM-1) gene polymorphisms and risk of delayed graft function after deceased donor kidney transplantation.
“These thirteen projects are important new components of the CNTRP and will have a significant impact on both solid organ and stem cell transplant patients,” says Dr. Lori West, Director of the CNTRP and Director of the Alberta Transplant Institute. “This record investment in new peer reviewed grant funding from our partners into the CNTRP ($325,000) will allow these investigators to integrate their research into the CNTRP structure, enabling them to leverage the full resources of the network to translate personalized medicine interventions into clinical practice.”
