The scientific founders of INTiDYN, Dr. Frank L. Rice and Dr. Phillip J. Albrecht, have over 30 years of published expertise in research of the skin, cutaneous innervation, and vasculature. They are the foremost established experts in a holistic, comprehensive research approach that is renowned for integrating high-resolution, multi-molecular morphological assessments across a wide range of nonhuman and human research models. Their ground-breaking research has been featured on the covers of such high impact journals as Nature Medicine, Neuron, PNAS, and Pain.


A sought after authority that delivers actionable data

Functioning for years as a multi-molecular morphometric core facility, INTiDYN expertise continues to be sought by a vast, expanding network of international collaborators. This network includes five Howard Hughes Investigators and over 30 leading universities, several government research institutes, and numerous biopharmaceutical companies. Through the scientific interactions of this network and a rich internal pipeline of research, INTiDYN maintains a leading edge in groundbreaking discoveries.

This collective experience provides unique insight and expertise in the execution, evaluation, integration, and, especially, the interpretation of multi-molecular morphological analyses of complex tissues, particularly skin and cutaneous innervation. The INTiDYN scientific staff can facilitate all phases of therapeutic discovery, development, and translation to human therapeutics.
