The Volunteer Blood Donor Registry (VBDR) is a not-for-profit service and is available to eligible researchers.

Researchers from research and health organisations in Parkville, Victoria, Australia, are eligible to access the VBDR. Contact the VBDR coordinators to discuss your specific research project requirements and determine whether the VBDR is the right service for your needs.

Laboratory research projects investigating any disease or disorder or healthy development are eligible. Up to 100ml of blood can be obtained per participant at any one time. Other tissue such as saliva, urine, stools, skin swabs, oral and nasal swabs, hair and nail clippings may also be collected.

You will need to inform your Human Research Ethics Committee that you intend to use the VBDR as a sample source, and provide evidence of your Human Research Ethics Committee approval to the VBDR.
