$50,000 secures a NMRF Research Fellow for 1 year. The addition of a dedicated research fellow offers the team more brain power and bandwidth during these critical early years.

$25,000 underwrites the Vineyard Worker pilot program. The study provides access to leading edge treatments for 5 vineyard workers experiencing chronic, untreated pain.

$15,000 ensures clinical study patients receive MRI. For some, medical costs can be prohibitive. We need to ensure every participant has proper imaging for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

$10,000 supports ongoing Clinical and Laboratory Studies including: The therapeutic action of cell components; an ultra-minimally invasive carpal tunnel surgery; and a new platelet lysate product.

$5,000 funds our PhD Cell + Molecular Biologist for one month. The innovations occurring in our lab are directly related to the caliber of our team. The early outcomes being delivered are promising.

$2,500 provides one month’s worth of critical NMRF Research Lab supplies. Special dyes, reagents, and fragile cell material are essential to establish protocols for, and improve quality of, cellular therapies.



657 discs from 278 patients exhibited good to excellent outcomes from intradiscal PRP.

14 publications, including 7 peer-reviewed journal articles and 7 book chapters.
6 current studies underway, 4 projects completed, and 3 case studies under consideration.
5 possible patent applications for intellectual property and product development.
1 hybrid ultrasound-guided injection technique proven more accurate than current practices.



Prior to the Sever’s Disease Study, my 11-year old son could barely walk and was in constant pain. The doctors had put one foot in a cast, the other in an ortho boot. In just 2 weeks with Dr. Bodor’s new regimen, he was cast-free and pain-free. – Stacy E.

The platelet rich plasma and stem cell treatments I have received have been so helpful to me in relieving bilateral knee pain and avoiding surgery for total knee replacement. I feel very blessed to be in your expert care! – Francesca P.

Regenerative medicine is the future and I’m living proof that these non-invasive therapies are worth pursuing. The research being conducted by Dr. Bodor and the NMRF has the potential to change modern medicine, eliminate certain risks and improve short and long term outcomes. – Oliver S.
