The Cardiff University Biobank is a centralised biobanking facility sited at the University Hospital of Wales.

We offer high quality human biosamples for research undertaken for patient benefit to academic and commercial organisations. We have established collections from a number of different disease areas and welcome approaches to initiate new collections not already established within the facility.

What we do, how you can be involved and latest vacancies.

We support a wide range of research projects throughout Wales, the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.

Donors are extremely important to the Biobank. Whether you are healthy or unwell, your samples are vital for research.

We welcome applications from commercial enterprises. We can set up bespoke collections to meet your needs.
