16:44 EDT 22nd September 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Biomedical Research Institute (BRI), founded in Rockville, MD in 1968, is a not-for-profit research institute, with a major emphasis on basic research in malaria and schistosomiasis. These two major tropical diseases affect hundreds of millions of people throughout the world. In addition to basic research, we provide life cycle stages of the schistosome parasites to the international community, principally through contracts with the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.
A for-profit subsidiary of BRI, the Biomedical Research Inc. (BRinc) houses one of the largest low temperature repositories in the world, currently supporting research in AIDS and a wide variety of other medical interests.

In 1985 BRI expanded its subsidiaries to include the Association of Entrepreneurial Science (AES), an incubator of small scientific companies, to bring scientists and basic research findings into the realm of commercial markets. AES brings together all the accompanying business skills required for profit making entrepreneurs to bring scientific products and services to the marketplace.
