How do I request human tissue for research?

To obtain biospecimens for your research project, start the process by completing a Feasibility Application. In this application, you will provide information about your project and any tissue types you will be requesting. The NDRI Feasibility Committee will then review your application to ensure that the public health relevance aligns with our mission and that we can feasibly provide the requested tissues. We will follow up with you after our internal discussion with comments and determination, and if the request is feasible, the next steps for getting samples.
