Monday, July 17th NDRI President & CEO, Bill Leinweber and Dr. Gene Kopen, Senior Vice President, Strategic Initiatives met with staff of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) for an engaging seminar entitled, “The Critical Role of Human Tissue Environmental Health Sciences Research”.
Mary J.C. Hendrix, PhD, Chair of the NDRI Board and President of Shepherd University shared that, “Shawn Blackburn’s expertise in technology to support research, Dr. Dib-Hajj’s research accomplishments and experience utilizing human tissue for research and Megan Singleton’s knowledge and experience in law, bioethics and human subject protections will be invaluable to advancing the mission of NDRI.”
NDRI has the privilege of serving as a partner to scientists across the world dedicated to advancing understanding of disease and the discovery of treatments and cures. The scientists we serve – our research partners – toil for answers built on evidence devoid of contamination of any kind.
Disease and disability have no political affiliation. The suffering endured by patients and the pain and heart break shared by their loved ones is experienced no differently by Democrats, Republicans or Independents.
NDRI proudly supports the March for Science activities that will take place in locations across our nation and the world on Saturday, April 22, 2017. We encourage all individuals who have a vested interest in a life free of disease and disability to make certain that those involved in scientific policy development and research funding decisions understand that our future depends on science.
The National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) is the nation’s leading source of human tissues, cells and organs for scientific research. As a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) organization founded in 1980, NDRI's mission is to provide human biospecimens to advance biomedical/bioscience research and development worldwide. NDRI is funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, public and private foundations and organizations, pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporations.

The nationwide March for Science movement has five overarching goals: humanize science, support the scientific process and scientists, advocate for accessible and inclusive science, partner with the public, and enable the use of science to improve society. Each of these values speaks to Philadelphia’s own scientific community and highlights some unique challenges that our region faces.
The National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) has been awarded a research subcontract of $225,453 to support the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Division of Clinical Research (DCR) HIV Replication Study aimed at improving HIV treatment.
