Research Donors offers biospecimens for precision medical research.

About us

Medicine will be transformed in the 21st century as new technologies are developed which use our blood and the immune system it contains to detect, treat and prevent disease.

As researchers race to develop new treatments and diagnostics, Research Donors recognised the urgent requirement for a European source of fresh, highly characterised human blood biospecimens for precision medicine research.

What we do

Research Donors recruits healthy volunteer donors to meet the blood biospecimen requirements of their clients. To-date they have recruited more than 2,000 donors, who enable researchers to access precisely defined blood samples to support their research and development activities.
