PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) has been awarded $5,955,435 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the next phase of human tissue collection for the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project—an NIH initiative begun in 2010 to investigate how genetic variation may relate to gene expression and its correlation with disease. NDRI and its partner organizations will use the funding over the next 15 months to procure 250 organ and tissue donors for researchers. NDRI President, Bill Leinweber, said, “NDRI’s contributions to the pilot phase of GTEx were critical. With leadership from our staff, Dr. John Lonsdale, vice president of research, and Jeff Thomas, vice president of donor services and sourcing, we look forward to continuing to contribute to the land-mark contributions of the GTEx project to biomedical research. I want to acknowledge the significant support from the National Cancer Institute’s Biorespository and Biospecimen Research Branch and contract management services at SAIC-Frederick.”
