The Coriell Institute stores and maintains the USIDNET Cell Repository, which only contains de-identified materials. The Repository does not have information for the identification of the sample donors. Materials in the collection are made available to qualified investigators in academic and commercial organizations to increase understanding and to promote development of new treatments for these disorders.
USIDNET is proud of the published works emerging from repository-based research. The following is a short-list of selected publications co-authored to date:
