IIAM Screening and Recovery
The decision to donate is a momentous one; often it comes at the most difficult time. Once the decision is made, either revealed through a donor registry or made by the donor family, it is our collective commitment to fulfill their wishes. IIAM stands ready to make donation for medical research as simple as possible.
IIAM hosts bi-annual Recovery Workshops to provide educational training for OPO specialists on proper procedures regarding recovery for research tissues. Please contact IIAM for more information.
* IIAM’s Research Recovery Workshops are on hold during the pandemic until further notice. Please check back for updates or contact your IIAM Regional Director for more information.*
Organ and Tissue Protocol Request
We all know the statistics too well: nearly 115,000 men, women and children in America wait for a lifesaving organ; 20 people die each day waiting for a suitable organ.
For those who work in the field of organ and tissue donation, these numbers are frustrating. Added to that frustration is the challenge of how to carry out a donor’s wish to have all his or her organs help others through placement.
IIAM has over 200 research studies awaiting non-transplantable organs to support their important work. Each research protocol differs depending on the organ and the needs of the researcher. For more information, call IIAM at 800-486-IIAM.
