Since 2014, we at iSpecimen have been committed to helping drive medical breakthroughs by connecting researchers with the human biospecimens they need from the patients who have them. In addition to streamlining researchers’ work, this work has helped biobanks and healthcare organizations fulfill their missions (and generate new revenue) by putting their banked, remnant and prospectively collected specimens to work.

Improving the cellular cleaning system in lab animals makes Alzheimer’s symptoms nearly disappear, researchers say. Researchers have discovered that humans and animals with Alzheimer’s show signs of compromised mitophagy, the process […]
