Human Tissue and Organ Resource for Research

THIS RESOURCE IS NO LONGER IN SERVICE, documented on July 17, 2013. A division of the National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI), based in Philadelphia, USA. NDRI is a nonprofit organization that procures and distributes normal and diseased human biomaterials, tissues, and organs to biomedical researchers in academia, government, and industry. As the national leader providing human tissues and organs to NIH-funded and university-based investigators, NDRI has developed a nationwide network of tissue collection partners to recover, preserve and distribute more than 20,000 biomaterials, tissues, and organs annually to more than 500 researchers. NDRI has developed targeted programs to increase the supply of human tissues and organs in areas with specific needs. Examples include the HIV Program and the Rare Disease Initiative. By collaborating with major medical centers, hospitals, pathology services, eye banks, tissue banks, and organ procurement organizations, HTOR provides a wide variety of normal and diseased human tissues and organs to researchers, using procurement protocols customized to meet the needs of individual investigators.
