Dedicated to making one of the world’s greatest collections of Natural Products, the former Merck and Schering-Plough natural products library, available to the scientific community.
NPDI is a division within the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute (BSBI), one of Pennsylvania’s most entrepreneurial non-profit research organizations. The NPDI was established in 2011 as a result of an unprecedented gift to the BSBI by Merck and Co. of its entire U.S. Natural Products Library and the Schering-Plough Legacy Culture Collection. Together, it is one of the largest, most diverse, best sourced, and carefully curated natural products collections in the world.
The Blumberg Institute is a Non-Profit 501(3c) Organization that is seeking donors to support the mining of this valuable collection for medical uses of interest to donors.
