Research Opportunities

The need for specific organs and tissue is determined by current research studies. Donated human organs and tissues uncover the pathology of various diseases and develop effective treatments and therapies to help combat and, where possible, cure them. Nevada Donor Network (NDN) is proud to be a part of the journey, when families graciously consent to research. We offer donor organs and tissue to qualified academic, governmental, pharmaceutical, biotech and private research institutions. All such recipients of donor tissue must complete an application/agreement and be approved by Nevada Donor Network Research Committee.

All new applications will be reviewed by Nevada Donor Network Research Committee, typically on a quarterly basis.
