Our Values

From Bench to Bedside

Transplant Manitoba-Pediatric Kidney Program serves the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, North Western Ontario and Nunavut. Our program is recognized both nationally and internationally for its innovative clinical research. Cutting-edge research sets the standard for advances in the clinical care of transplanted children. Our unique innovations include:

  1. Pediatric Protocol Biopsy and Follow-Up Biopsy Programs for the early detection of subclinical (aka "silent") rejection.
  2. Quantitative image analysis to monitor the progression of chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) (aka "scarring"), the leading cause of long-term graft loss in children.
  3. Non-invasive biomarkers of rejection using urine nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
  4. Clincal trials aimed at the modulation of CAN.
