Alpha-1 Biomaterials Exchange

The Alpha-1 Biomaterial Exchange is an open resource for both academia and industry that works by matching one investigator (in need of biomaterial) with another investigator (the supplier of biomaterial).

Biomaterials:

The availability of alpha-1 biomaterial is constantly changing. Please check back if you cannot receive the materials you want on the first try. At any time, biomaterials may become available in the following categories:

  • Viruses
  • Viral Vectors
  • Plasmids
  • Mice
  • Cell lines
  • Patient Samples (lung, liver)
  • Data Sets

How to participate in the exchange:

If you are interested in becoming part of the exchange, either as an investigator who is willing to provide alpha-1 biomaterial, or an investigator who is interested in acquiring alpha-1 biomaterial, please download and fill out this application form and submit it to David Fernandez, Manager of Research Administration, via email at dfernandez@alpha-1foundation.org.
