Researchers

National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) BioResource was established to further clinical research within the UK by assisting researchers with volunteer recruitment, specifically volunteer recruitment by genotype and/or phenotype.

BioResource is expanding from a core base of 20,000 volunteers today with plans to increase to over 100,000 volunteers by 2017 – volunteers who have supplied a sample of their DNA, that you can recall to participate in further research.

Experimental medicine studies involving a relatively small number of individuals recruited according to clinical, genetic and molecular phenotype can rapidly advance understanding of disease mechanisms, identify potential drug targets, and improve insight into the therapeutic potential and limitations of existing and emerging therapies.
