Want to help to make a difference?
We are always looking for new volunteers, with and without health conditions, to join the BioResource. Every person who joins can play an important role in our efforts to understand the links between genes, the environment, health and disease.
Joining is quick and easy and can be done at one of our regional BioResource centres or via 100+ participating NHS Trusts.
Or are you already a member?
Our 200,000+ participants are at the heart of our work to help researchers better understand the causes of disease and to improve diagnosis and patient outcomes. Without you, vital health research cannot progress.
Volunteers can easily update email preferences, learn about how we handle your data, withdraw from the BioResource and more.
A participant's story
Sally explains why she joined the BioResource and how everyone benefits from her volunteering.
We work with key cohorts of participants in rare diseases, common diseases and healthy populations. Due to the specialist work needed to support COVID research we have a special section for that too. Every participant and each cohort plays a vital role in our efforts to improve diagnosis and treatment of human disease.
