Dr. Darren Yuen has been awarded the inaugural Canadian Society of Transplantation postdoctoral fellowship.

The award, worth $50,000 a year for each of two years, is given to someone who has completed a PhD or MD to support their research. The fellowship began in July.

Dr. Yuen will use the funding to support his final research training before starting his own independent research program at St. Michael’s Hospital. His area of interest is kidney transplantation, particularly new therapies for kidney disease.

Dr. Yuen is currently doing his research work at the Hospital for Sick Children under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Robinson, a kidney transplant physician, while doing his clinical work at St. Michael's.
