Biomedical Research Institute (BRI) is a 501 c-3 nonprofit company whose mission is to develop improved diagnostic methods and a vaccine to treat people infected with schistosomiasis. We currently are funded to supply schistosomiasis life cycle reagents to the international research community with support from NIH-NIAID. Dr. Margaret Mentink-Kane and Dr. Michael Hsieh manage BRI’s¬†Schistosomiasis Resource Center. In addition, NIH grant funding and endowment funds for the research laboratory of Dr. Michael Hsieh support our research. In order to accelerate progress we are reaching out to the public for donations to support our research and development work. For more information about how to make a donation to BRI and support our work in the area of Global Health, please email Edwin Ashourian at eashourian@afbr-bri.com or call ¬†301-881-3300.
