NDRI's 40th Anniversary Service to Science Awards Dinner Postponement

Thank you for being a part of the NDRI Community. NDRI’s Board of Directors and leadership team has made the decision to postpone our 40th Anniversary Service to Science Dinner in Philadelphia, PA on November 12, 2020, due to growing uncertainty surrounding the current and evolving COVID19 outbreak.

The decision to postpone this event came from our concerns about the health and well-being of our community of scientists, researchers, patients and patient advocates, hospitals and organ procurement partners. Bi-annually, NDRI has gathered the patient advocate and scientific community together to celebrate extraordinary individuals and organizations whose achievements and contributions truly exemplify service to science. This year, in particular, we were eager to celebrate our 40 year anniversary of empowering research and discovery.

The date for a rescheduled awards dinner will be decided as more information becomes available. We look forward to communicating this new date to you and hope that you will join us in celebrating the contributions of our outstanding awardees. In the interim, we plan on hosting some virtual events that will allow us to honor and celebrate achievements with our partners worldwide.   You can learn more about our awardees, and future event notifications on our anniversary website

Thank you for your support during this challenging time for our community. We hope you and your families stay safe and healthy.
