Bill Leinweber, President and CEO of National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) admits that NDRI’s work is complicated, because medical research is complex. For nearly 40 years, NDRI has accepted the challenge of meeting increasing demands of the medical research community, who rely on high-quality, healthy, and diseased biospecimens to conduct lifesaving research.
The National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) has been awarded more than $800,000 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The supplemental awards provide support for NDRI to serve as a human biospecimen resource for research focused specifically on Alzheimer’s disease, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and HIV/AIDS. The three awards are supplements to NDRI’s Human Tissues and Organs for Research Resources (HTORR) program which has been supported by the NIH since 1987.
“Support from the NIH affirms the strong value of our mission,” said Gene Kopen, PhD, NDRI’s Senior Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and principal investigator for the HTORR grant. “As an organization, NDRI has demonstrated the capacity to leverage this support to enable a broad range of complex research projects requiring human organs and tissues.”
The Board of Directors and staff of National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) celebrate the extraordinary life and unparalleled legacy of
D. Walter Cohen, DDS, who died on June 29, 2018 in Philadelphia.
The 2018 Warren Alpert Foundation Prize has been awarded to five scientists for transformative discoveries in the fields of genetics, physiology, pulmonology and pharmacology that have led to the development of life-altering precision-targeted treatments for the devastating multiorgan disease cystic fibrosis (CF).
