We collect many different types of tissue and body fluids for use in biomedical research from hospital patients, healthy volunteers, volunteers with certain conditions, and the recently deceased.
Scientists need these human tissues, cells and body fluids for research into how a disease starts as well as finding different ways of diagnosing and treating it. The purpose of Ethical Tissue is to help biomedical researchers to prevent, diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses.
Information about donors remains strictly confidential. We do not pass on personal data to researchers. After you have donated you also have the right to withdraw any unused donations you have made.
We would like to thank all those involved in donating samples for biomedical research.
