NIHR BioResource - How do we facilitate health research?

Age suitable for: 16+


The NIHR BioResource is a national resource committed to bringing together volunteers, researchers, clinicians, patient groups, charities and companies to contribute to leading research that benefits all.

The Southampton BioResource centre is one of our 13 NIHR BioResource centres across England.

Check our Southampton BioResource poster for more information about the joining process.

With a particular focus on phenotype or genotype, we help research organisations with their research studies and clinical trials, by either participant recall or the provision of data and/or biological samples.

If you would like to learn more about the research studies that we support and the way in which you could contribute as a volunteer, please have a look at our joining video and research poster.

We have also provided a video explaining the differences between phenotyping and genotyping!
