Transplantation Research Resources

NIAID-supported programs offer valuable resources, such as experimental reagents and data, to researchers.

NIH NHP Reagent Resource

This resource produces nonhuman primate (NHP) antibodies and other reagents for in vitro diagnostics and recombinant antibodies and fusion proteins for in vivo administration. The website also provides information on commercial immunologic reagents, assays, and experimental techniques. Reagents developed through this resource are available to all researchers using NHP models. This resource is supported by NIAID and the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of the Director.

National Swine Research and Resource Center (NSRRC)

Swine have made valuable contributions to almost every field of human medicine. Because of their shared anatomic and physiologic characteristics with humans, they are also the most promising species for xenotransplantation. The NSRRC was established in 2003 to facilitate use of this important animal model. Functions of the NSRRC include development, breeding, and distribution of genetically modified, pathogen-free swine for use as models of xenotransplantation, human health and disease.

The NSRRC is sponsored by the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs within the NIH Office of the Director and is co-sponsored by NIAID and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

The Immune Tolerance Network (ITN) developed TrialShare to distribute clinical trial data and biological specimens to the scientific community. Data from ITN-published manuscripts are publicly available with the goal of promoting research transparency, reproducibility, and scientific collaboration.

ImmPort is a Web portal that contains archival data from a wide range of NIAID-funded immunology studies spanning basic research and clinical trials. It also provides online tools that allow any researcher to easily and quickly visualize the results of their own analyses of the data. The portal enables the integration of data from a variety of laboratories and supports collaboration between scientists, helping to generate novel hypotheses and potential new discoveries.
