Research Donor Program (RDP)
The Research Donor Program (RDP) serves as a central repository for the collection
and distribution of whole blood samples from healthy volunteers to the Frederick National Lab
Investigators for in vitro research use. Approved projects can obtain timely and
inexpensive samples through OHS. Employees of the Frederick National Lab and Fort Detrick
community may volunteer to be donors. Monetary compensation is provided for donor
participation. The program is administered by Occupational Health Services.
