CIHR grants for TBEP

Last week, a delegation from Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) visited our department (TBEP, Translational Biology and Engineering Program). The visit served as a public announcement for the 2017 CIHR grants (awarded April last year), 10 of which went to UofT and 4 to TBEP, including the Simmons lab for Engineering Pulmonary Valve Tissue for Pediatric Patients with Tetralogy of Fallot and Development of a physiological cardiac microtissue platform for drug development.

Read more about it on UofT‘s, Ted Roger’s or IBBME‘s websites.
