This website introduces a series of important research studies established by the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Cambridge, involving healthy volunteers from the NIHR BioResource.

The NIHR BioResource is a group of over 200,000 volunteers who kindly donated blood and saliva samples for research purposes. Volunteers may then be invited to participate in our research studies based on their specific genetic make-up (so-called ‘recall’ studies).
