HOW YOU CAN HELP
Researchers around the world need blood samples to facilitate their work developing new treatment technologies and even cures. To expedite this research, we collect many types of specialized blood samples including maternal blood, umbilical cord blood, and even small samples (only tablespoons) from cancer patients. These small samples are doing big work! For example, scientists can use maternal blood in the creation of simple blood screenings to detect any anomalies in early pregnancy.
Scientist must go through many phases of research and trials before new technologies reach patients. By providing needed blood samples to researchers, we are able to help accelerate the time it takes to complete vital projects. It's pretty amazing, and you can help!
