MRIGLOBAL SUPPORTS PRE-CLINICAL DRUG DEVELOPMENT AND MANUFACTURE FOR NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH NATIONAL CENTER FOR ADVANCING TRANSLATIONAL SCIENCES (NCATS)
MRIGlobal is supporting pre-clinical drug development for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center…
MRIGlobal provides personalized service that larger contract research organizations can't offer. We listen to our clients' precise needs so that we can tailor our work to deliver the optimal outcome to each client.
Containerized Bio-Containment Unit (CBCS)
In collaboration with the U.S. Department of State and the Paul G. Allen Ebola Program, MRIGlobal custom designed and fabricated a first-of-its-kind flyable medical transport unit with full bio-containment. The unit features a treatment area, an anteroom for the safe don and doff of personal protective equipment, and a rest area for caregivers. It is flyable in both private and military aircraft.
MRIGlobal works across both disciplinary and institutional boundaries in its pursuit to help clients solve their scientific and engineering challenges. We collaborate with government, industry, and community partners in a wide array of cross-disciplinary initiatives.
