Volunteers Needed to help medical research

The NIHR BioResource Centre Newcastle contributes to a national initiative, designed to fight against common conditions and rare diseases that effect people across the UK.

By gaining more information about our genes we can look more closely at how diseases develop. This can help to identify better treatments in the future.

How it works

There are four simple steps:

  • A nurse will go through the documentation with you and answer any questions you may have
  • If you are happy to join, you will then sign a consent form and complete a questionnaire
  • We will then take a blood sample. Your information will be entered into a secure database
  • You may then be invited to take part in other medical research and you are free to decide whether you would like to take part.

By taking part in the BioResource, you can help make a significant contribution to advancing the diagnosis and treatments of a range of conditions.
