About Raymond

As the Executive Director of the Infectious Disease Research Center (IDRC), Dr. Goodrich has responsibility for oversight of the Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing and Academic Resource Center (BioMARC) and the Research Innovation Center (RIC). BioMARC is an FDA-inspected not-for-profit service entity that specializes in the production of biologic products that require high containment facilities. The RIC facility houses faculty and private industry research programs requiring biocontainment and general laboratory support environments. Dr. Goodrich’s research has focused on the study of transfusion transmitted infections and the development of methods for the prevention of transfusion transmitted disease. He has engaged in research on the role of donor white blood cells in the development of graft versus host disease and alloimmunization responses in transfusion recipients. His research has been focused on the development of methods to prevent adverse reactions to blood transfusion.


Ph.D. Chemistry, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, 1990B.S. Chemistry, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, 1985
