National Institute for Health Research BioResource

National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) BioResource is a panel 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.

Over 20 million people in the UK suffer from chronic disease. Living with a chronic disease has a major impact on a person’s quality of life and on their family. At BioResource we want to understand more about the links between genes and disease and we need your help to do this. Over 20,000 people have participated to date and by 2017 we hope to have over 100,000 volunteers; will you join them and help with this vital research?

NIHR BioResource – Rare Diseases has been established to recruit patients with rare diseases and their relatives. We want to drive identification of disease cause, improve diagnosis and help improve treatments and care for those individuals and their families.
