Collaborative Grants Info



At the Terasaki Research Institute, work with our research and industry partners to facilitate and produce high quality and high value research. One way we do this is through serving as a collaborative partners on NIH and Industry sponsored grants. In addition to providing intellectual insight into the best research for patient centered innovation, we offer a number of value added services on grants. These services include the following: laboratory services (anti-HLA antibody testing, microRNA library screens, etc.), data science (i.e. machine learning/AI), data coordinating center (with biostatistics, database setup, data visualization), and data analytics for business partners. Because of our dedication to the patient and of commitment to honest and research of the highest integrity, we will provide a competitive low rate on our service costs. We are committed to stretching the dollars in research to make more innovation possible.
