Donation Programs

Tissue donations meet many needs

Progress in treating common and rare diseases often hinges on access to human tissue. Donated tissues are often in short supply — especially those for specialized needs. NDRI coordinates several disease-specific donation programs to further specialized research into conditions such as Type 1 diabetes, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and neurofibromatosis. Through these programs, we work with nationwide disease registries to identify potential donors, obtain authorization for donation and ensure that investigators have access to the human tissues and organs that are so critical to their research.

NDRI is a Not-For-Profit (501c3) Corporation.
