The more people and information we hold within the national BioResource, the faster researchers are able to select and recruit individuals to specific research studies; ultimately resulting in a marked improvement in the understanding of human diseases and development of relevant therapeutic treatments.

Volunteers donate a small sample of either blood or saliva and give permission to be contacted and invited to take part in medical research studies on the basis of data gathered from the samples and information supplied. There is, however, no obligation to participate in any of these studies. All samples and data are anonymised and kept completely confidentially.

Why donating is important WEB


If you are not a current volunteer and would like to donate a sample to our BioResource please contact us by email at  or by telephone on 020 7718 7188 ext 52591
