Large Scale NIH-funded Programs
NDRI receives funding from the NIH to support the recovery and distribution of donated human organs and tissues for use in research programs across multiple disciplines. NDRI has the ability to source organs and tissues at the volumes needed for large-scale research programs.
The Human Tissue and Organs for Research Resource (HTORR) Program is an NIH-funded initiative that provides academic biomedical investigators with donated normal and diseased human tissues and organs recovered from a diverse donor pool.
Somatic Mosaicism Across Human Tissues (SMaHT) Network is an NIH Common Fund program that aims to transform our knowledge of how much genetic variation there is in the cells and tissues throughout our bodies.
The Developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx) project is a new, NIH-supported initiative to establish a scientific research resource of gene expression patterns in multiple healthy reference neonatal, pediatric, and adolescent tissues.
