Want to help to make a difference?
We are always looking for new volunteers, with and without health conditions, to join us!
Every person who joins plays an important role in our efforts to understand the links between genes, the environment, health and disease.
Joining is quick and easy and can be done at one of our centres, via a saliva kit in the mail, or at your blood donor appointment.
Or are you already a member?
Our 200,000+ volunteers are at the heart of our work to help researchers better understand the causes of disease and to improve diagnosis and patient outcomes.
If you are already a volunteer, thank you so much for taking part! Without you, vital health research cannot progress.
As a volunteer, you can easily update your email preferences, learn about how we handle your data, withdraw your details and more.

A participant's story
This inspiring story from one of our amazing volunteers explains why she takes part in research and why she believes it is important others do too!
Without our volunteers, we would not be able to support the vital health research that is improving patient outcomes for those with common and rare diseases.
Our volunteers help us to understand and improve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
We work with key cohorts of volunteers in rare diseases, common diseases and healthy populations. Due to the specialist work needed to support COVID research, we have a special section for that too.
Every volunteer and each cohort plays a vital role in our efforts to improve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
