The Cambridge BioResource is a resource of thousands of volunteers, both with and without health problems, who are willing to be approached to participate in research studies investigating the links between genes, the environment, health and disease.
Volunteers who join the Cambridge BioResource donate their DNA via a blood or saliva sample. Their DNA is then used together with other information such as their gender and ethnicity, to match them to specific research studies. In this way, the Cambridge BioResource is able to provide researchers with groups of volunteers, tailor-made to the research question at hand.
The Cambridge BioResource has become key to research on genes and disease in Cambridge. Recruitment is ongoing so if you are interested in joining, please contact us.
