HTORR Program

HTORR Program

NDRI’s Human Tissues and Organs for Research Resource (HTORR) Program has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for almost 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, preservation and distribution protocols.

Our HTORR Program supports NIH-funded and academic biomedical research investigators’ needs by providing: 

    • Human biospecimens from any body system
    • Access to a diverse range of donor populations
    • Project-specific procurements and preservation formats including fresh, frozen, and fixed suitable for various analytical techniques
    • Technical support to design your studies utilizing human biospecimens
    • Letters of support and budgetary information for grant applications
    • Timely response to requests and 24/7 distribution
