Get involved

There are many ways you can help us.

Donate samples

We are looking for people to donate samples to the Biobank. You don’t have to be unwell; healthy volunteers are also important in helping us understand the difference between healthy and diseased people.

More information about the donation process.



The Biobank has a number of committees that oversee its strategic direction and review applications for access to samples. Lay and patient members sit on both the Steering Committee and the Scientific Review Committee. If you would be interested in being involved please contact us. We can provide you with further information and let you know if we are currently looking to recruit members for these committees.

Donate funds

Financial donations, whatever the size, will help support the sustainability of the Biobank and keep down the cost of accessing samples. Your donation will be put towards the running of the Biobank to ensure this crucial facility is able to continue to provide biosamples for research projects throughout the world.

When completing the donation form, please write "Donation for the Cardiff University Biobank" in the comments section.

I would like to give a donation.
