Request Process

NDRI makes it easy for researchers to get the human tissues and organs they need using a request process designed to ensure that biospecimens are prepared, preserved and shipped precisely according to the needs of their protocol.

Our two-step request process includes a Feasibility Application and a Project Development Application. Once your project is approved and you sign the Approval Letter, NDRI activates your protocol and will notify you of tissue procurement. Review the request process below.

1. Complete the Feasibility Application and submit it to NDRI.

NDRI Feasibility Committee reviews your application and either approves or suggests modifications.

2. Complete the Project Development Application and submit it to NDRI.

NDRI develops customized protocols based on the criteria in your applications.
