Human Tissues and Organs for Tomorrow's Scientific Breakthroughs
To serve scientists with customized biomaterials for use in studies to understand human disease. Human cells, tissues, and organs are required to investigate how human disease progresses and to develop new drugs and therapies for treatments and cures.
Dedication to Highest Quality
NDRI is dedicated to providing the highest quality human biomaterials for research.
Making It Easy For Researchers
NDRI makes it easy for researchers to get the human tissues and organs they need, prepared, preserved and shipped precisely according to their specific scientific protocols, as quickly as possible, and in the largest available quantities. (Click to view how this process works)
Ensuring Human Tissues and Organs Are Not Wasted
We work everyday to help ensure that tissues and organs donated for medical research are shipped to the nation's top scientific laboratories for study. Tissues and organs donated for research should never be wasted. (Click for a complete bibliography of our participating researchers)
NDRI is the nation’s premier source of research tissue. By serving as the liaison between tissue and organ donors and the scientific community, NDRI is uniquely positioned to support breakthrough research in health care on disease states like HIV AIDS, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and many more.
Did you know that you can impact scientific breakthroughs by donating your tissue now, even while you are still living? We make it easy for donors to become active partners in solving complex medical challenges. There’s no cost, and your donation could make the difference for someone at risk between a compromised outcome and a cure for a rare, as-of-now untreatable disease.
If you are a researcher, you know how important it is to have access to the right types of tissue at the right time. And to achieve success in your research, you have certain protocols to follow. We know all about that, and we can work with you one-on-one to deliver you the type of tissue you need in the format that will best adapt to your research needs.
Here are some of the reasons why leaders in the research community turn to NDRI:
Available tissues for HIV AIDS research
Rare diseases tissue types and preparations
Stem cell product lines
Genetics program, providing specific DNA cell lines
Long-term relationships with tissue sources, resulting in fast and fresh tissue samples
Knowledgeable, experienced staff to assist with special tissue requirements and tissue preparation
20-30,000 tissues available
24-hour post mortem recovery anywhere in the country
