Private Donor Webinar

Organ and tissue donation for research can make the difference for someone with a common or rare disease, potentially leading to a new treatment or a cure. NDRI makes it easy to become an active partner in solving complex medical challenges.

Our Private Donor Program gives individuals the opportunity to register as organ and tissue donors for biomedical research, allowing them to leave a meaningful legacy for their families and friends. To coordinate these recoveries, NDRI partners with organ procurement organizations (OPOs), tissue banks, hospitals, medical examiners and funeral homes. These industry professionals help champion the last wishes of NDRI's registered participants.
