The Canadian Institute of Health Research has recognized our lab’s research on “advancing our understanding of why transplanted kidneys fail prematurely and helping to develop new potential treatments to prolong their lifespan” as high calibre health research at Western University.
The results for the 2016 Fall CIHR Project Grant competition were recently announced and we were fortunate enough to be awarded a 5-year CIHR project grant for our KIM-1 transplant work in this highly competitive selection process! Thanks to each and everyone of our members for their contribution to the success of our research program….
Several CNTRP Researchers took part in producing the new Textbook of Organ Transplantation. Dr. Gunaratnam was one of the contributors to this extensive publication that provides a comprehensive overview of modern transplantation.
As the school year has come to an end, we have a few special announcements to share regarding our lab members: Shivam – Congratulations on getting accepted to the M.Sc. program in Bioethics at Harvard University! Marie – Congratulations on getting accepted to the School of Optometry at University of Waterloo! Alina – Congratulations…
Marie has been selected as a Feature Platform Presentation winner for her oral presentation during London Health Research Day on Tuesday, March 28th for her work on Kidney Injury Molecule-1 Promotes Renal Cell Carcinoma Tumor Progression. Congratulations Marie!
Shivam recently presented his thesis work on Kim-1 gene polymorphisms and risk of delayed graft function after deceased donor kidney transplantation at Ontario Biology Day. He won best oral presentation in the category of human health. Congratulations!
Congratulations to our very own Rak for winning NSERC USRA for the summer of 2017! Unfortunately, he will be leaving our lab temporarily on a training trip but will be back with more knowledge and skills. We wish him goodluck on his endeavours.
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…
Last week, Dr. Gunaratnam attended the Canadian National Transplant Research Program’s 2016 International Transplant Research Summit in Edmonton, Alberta! Some of the worlds top basic science researchers attended this conference to discuss emerging areas of biomedical research in transplantation. The goal of the workshop was to explore and plan international research collaborations to stimulate cutting-edge…
