Why should I join?

chestertonThe NIHR BioResource Centre Cambridge supports studies looking at how genes influence a variety of diseases and illnesses. By gaining more information and understanding of the specific genes involved in the development of a disease we can begin to identify better treatments to reduce the effect of the disease or cure it. A more complete understanding will also hopefully enable us to prevent some diseases occurring altogether in the future.

In the UK around 20 million people are said to be living with chronic diseases. Living with a chronic disease has a major impact on a person’s quality of life and on their family. The increasing incidence of these also presents a significant cost burden to the UK’s economy and healthcare system. If you choose to participate you are helping the future development of healthcare provision and the long term prevention and treatment of these diseases.
