Impact of Partnerships

Why Work With NDRI?

Researchers are working hard to understand and develop new therapies for a wide range of diseases, and human biospecimens, both healthy and diseased, play a key role in advancing their knowledge. By donating much-needed organs and tissues for research, donors and their families have the opportunity to potentially affect the lives of millions. NDRI offers unmatched experience in providing anatomical gifts for research.

Current Programs & Initiatives

We have developed a number of targeted programs to encourage donation of human tissues and organs for specific areas of research with the highest demand for more resources. To learn more about our current list of programs and initiatives follow the links below:

HTORR

NDRI’s Human Tissue and Organs for Research Resource (HTORR) Program has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for over 35 consecutive years to support all NIH-funded and academic research programs across multiple disciplines. The HTORR program provides biomedical investigators with donated normal and diseased human tissues and organs recovered using project-specific procurement, processing, and preservation and distribution protocols.

dGTEx

The Developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx) project is an NIH initiative to establish a resource of pediatric human tissues and comprehensive gene expression data. The project aims to collect tissues and build gene expression profiles from at least 120 postmortem pediatric donors to better understand the impact of genomic variation on complex traits and diseases.

SmaHT

Somatic Mosaicism Across Human Tissues (SMaHT) Network is an NIH Common Fund initiative that will provide the first comprehensive public resource for analyzing genetic variation due to somatic mosaicism in human tissues from all developmental layers in the human body.

HIV Donor Program

NDRI’s HIV Private Donor Program gives HIV positive individuals and their families an opportunity to leave a meaningful legacy. We do this by providing a simple system through which organs and tissues can be donated for HIV research after death. Once you register as a private donor, NDRI handles the recovery of tissues and provides them to NDRI-approved researchers.
