Quality in Organ Donation (QUOD)

The Quality in Organ Donation (QUOD) initiative facilitates research into organ donation and transplantation by providing researchers with samples and clinical data from appropriately consented / authorised DCD and DBD organ donors. We have over 90,000 biosamples from over 5,000 organ donors available for biomedical research. We can provide blood, urine and BAL samples, and tissue biopsies (left and right kidneys, liver, ureter, spleen, heart). Samples will be available to research projects based on scientific merit. Visit our website to apply to access our samples.
