Research Programs

The TRF is dedicated to supporting innovative transplantation research to benefit the lives of organ recipients in British Columbia. Through our Venture Grants program we provide funding each year to BC based scientists conducting transplant research in new areas of exploration that will lead to better quality of life and improved outcomes for transplant patients. To date we have awarded over $800,000 to more than 25 projects over the past decade. Our Venture Grant scientists have made several exciting discoveries including work on blood biomarkers to determine rejection in transplant patients and novel approaches to controlling immunity.
