Bringing people together and leading research
We are at the heart of efforts to improve healthcare and the long-term prevention and treatment of disease. The NIHR BioResource is committed to bringing together researchers and willing volunteers to contribute to leading research that will benefit everyone.
We seek to facilitate human health research and its transformation into medical practice.
We achieve this by:
- Recruiting and engaging with active participants, who volunteer to work with the BioResource and our partners
- Collaborating with leading research groups in academia, NHS and industry to rapidly translate the findings in the lab into benefits for the clinic
- Developing effective and efficient systems to provide rapid, consistent and valuable integrated access to samples, data and resources to tackle healthcare challenges
- Building effective, added-value partnerships with health research groups, organisations, companies and charities that maximise the value of our research, systems and resources for healthcare improvement.
