Industry researchers

Committed to application 

The NIHR BioResource has unique strengths for commercial research.

Refine by phenotype, refine by genotype, refine your search.

Single consent, single database, single repository.


By using the BioResource, researchers have the chance to be much more specific with regards to their study criteria. With a particular focus on phenotype or genotype, we help research organisations recruit volunteers for scientific studies and clinical trials.

We are at the heart of efforts to improve healthcare and the long-term prevention and treatment of disease. It is our aim to collaborate with leading research groups in the industry to rapidly translate findings into treatment.
