Dear CST Member,

We are pleased to launch a new funding opportunity with Astellas Pharma Canada Inc called the Astellas CST Clinical Research Grant Program. The objective of this program is to support peer-reviewed research that addresses barriers in the field of transplantation, with the ultimate goal of advancing long-term health outcomes and quality of life for Canadian transplant patients.

The primary focus of the Program is to support a clinical research project related to solid organ transplantation.

Grant recipients are expected to demonstrate that their proposed research will improve knowledge in a scientific area relevant to organ donation or transplantation and/or contribute to improving patient care. Grants will be awarded to the successful applicant(s).  It is anticipated that 1 grant of $100,000 will be awarded in July 2016 and disbursed over two years.

Submission deadline is January 31, 2016.
