Join the Cambridge BioResource

Help the fight against conditions such as heart disease and diabetes by joining a pioneering research panel as a volunteer.


The Cambridge BioResource is a unique panel of volunteers and patients who have agreed to be recalled (based on genotype and phenotype) to participate in clinical research.


The last five years has seen the CBR grow into an invaluable resource. Through collaboration with the National Health Service Blood and Transplant Centre (NHSBT), CBR now has over 16,000 members on its volunteer panel.

Researchers recall volunteers based on their DNA (genotype) and by other factors including gender, age and lifestyle, (phenotype) matching you to appropriate research studies.


In 2012 the NIHR awarded funding to Cambridge to develop a National BioResource, with plans to widen participation in clinical research to larger numbers of the population. You can join today and participation is open to anyone over the age of 6.
