About Tampa Bay Research Institute “TBRI”
TBRI is dedicated to the study, cure and prevention of cancer and chronic infectious diseases. TBRI is similar to a number of other research institutes in the United States and abroad in that TBRI is interdisciplinary in nature and focused on biomedical research. However, TBRI is different in that TBRI is dedicated to exploring unique biological pathways of the human immune system as they relate to several diseases, rather than maintaining a focus on a single disease. In addition, TBRI provides valuable community health education that is backed by the latest Biomedical Research.
TBRI is an independent biomedical research institute. TBRI’s independence allows for all biomedical research to be approached utilizing a neutral, science-based foundation. Since its formation in 1981, TBRI has strongly believed that this flexibility has enabled TBRI to rapidly focus resources on promising areas of scientific study rather than on other, non-scientific requirements sometimes imposed by outside or industry funding sources.
The independence also has allowed TBRI to serve all institutions and colleges that require assistance or cooperation, upon request. TBRI actively collaborates with universities and hospitals throughout the world as a scientific resource. Over the last 33 years, TBRI has conducted scientific collaborations with a number of prestigious institutions, including All Children’s Hospital, Eckerd College, Emory University in Atlanta, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at UCLA, Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the Kitasato Institute in Japan, the Moffitt Cancer Center at the University of South Florida (USF), North Carolina State University in Raleigh, St. Pete College (SPC), Suncoast Hospital in Largo, Tampa General Hospital, the University of Chicago, and the University of Montreal in Canada. In addition, TBRI has trained in excess of 100 Undergraduate and Graduate students from the U.S. and abroad, as well as a number of postdoctoral fellows.
