Established in 1964, Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute (LFKRI) is the research branch of New York Blood Center Enterprises (NYBCe). LFKRI at NYBCe is one of the world’s preeminent blood research organizations conducting foundational, epidemiologic, and clinical research. Wholly focused on and unique in our ability to translate hematology insights into better health, we have assembled a prestigious team of investigators recognized globally for their innovative ideas and quality research.
Our deep exploration into and understanding of the mechanisms underlying blood related diseases has resulted in tangible benefits for patients. Our investigators have discovered and licensed novel blood related products, techniques, therapies, and diagnostics that have been developed and commercialized by NYBCe and our many collaborators.
With unparalleled access to blood resources, we have created state-of-the-art research platforms in our cutting-edge facilities. As an independent, nonprofit entity, we offer an environment distinct from academic and corporate settings, providing career and undergraduate summer internship opportunities for growth and scientific leadership.
