Conducting research with human tissues enables faster development of more efficacious drugs with improved safety profiles and an enhanced understanding of basic disease processes that directly affect humans.
The Heart of Lifesaving Discoveries
Conducting research on non-transplantable human organs and tissues is the best way to understand the processes of diseases, discover treatments and cures, and enhance the development of safe and effective drugs. For more than 30 years, through our network of every U.S. organ procurement organization, IIAM has been serving the medical and scientific communities by making these non-transplantable biomaterials available for research. IIAM has access to more than 15,000 organs and tissues annually, leading to discoveries that have the potential to cure or prevent diseases. IIAM links donors to the scientific community conducting vital medical research.
Sam Popa, Certified Ex Vivo Lung Specialist at Lung Bioengineering, said “IIAM’s expertise in every area frees us to do our work without worry. Their large network of OPO partners nationwide provides great access, and their screening capabilities ensure that the organs meet our specific inclusion/exclusion criteria.”
