About Us

Established in 2005, the Cayman Biomedical Research Institute (CaBRI) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. It is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the research campus of Cayman Chemical, a global biomedical research company. CaBRI recognizes that all important and worthwhile science is not big science. In particular, many rare genetic defects and rare cancers remain without treatment, largely because they cannot compete for research funding with better publicized and more common conditions.

CaBRI devotes itself to the study and eventual therapy of these conditions. Our research is dedicated to the Donor Gamete Archive which assists clients in:

  • Matching biological offspring with semen donors
  • Identifying half siblings (male and female) through genetic testing
  • Obtaining a personal genetic profile
  • Storing biological samples

As well as, the study of Sinonasal Undifferentiated Carcinoma (SNUC), a rare a devastating cancer.

We welcome contacts from families, donors, or other interested parties who understand that patients with rare conditions are not just sick. They are both sick and alone in their fight for survival.

It is our mission to bring knowledge, better medicines, and a sense of family to all those with such conditions.
