Access UK human tissue samples for drug discovery research

Are you looking for consented human samples for diagnostic and preclinical drug development and research?

In our State of the Discovery Nation report, 64% of UK SMEs said access to donated UK samples was difficult. We are collaborating with the Tissue Directory and with Tissue Solutions, to solve this problem.

The Tissue Directory is the UK’s only register of sample collections that covers multiple diseases and allows searching based on age, gender, disease classification, sample type, and available datasets.
