Sign up to SHARE

Will you help to advance the development of precision medicine in Glasgow by taking a few moments to sign up to the SHARE register?

Every day in Scotland around 7,000 samples of blood are discarded after use. The SHARE project, of which the University of Glasgow is a partner, aims to encourage the public to allow any spare blood left over from routine sampling to be retained and used for medical research into diseases such as cancer, diabetes and asthma.

By providing researchers with access to your old blood you can help doctors understand more about how these diseases develop in different people and how different people respond to different drugs.

By signing up, people aged 16 or over agree to be contacted about participating in medical studies.

It’s quick and easy to sign up at Register for Share.

You are very welcome to attend the launch of SHARE at the Queen Elizabeth Teaching & Learning Centre, The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow on Thursday 27 August from 5-7pm. Refreshments will be available.

Please RSVP to share@dundee.ac.uk or call 01382 383 230.

Thank you.
