Barts Bioresourse

The purpose of the Bart’s Bioresource was to establish a repository of generic consented patients clinically managed by Cardiac Services at Bart’s Health NHS Trust. In addition to this the consent includes the donation of human blood, tissue donation (e.g. atrial appendage or pulmonary vein tissue) for the purpose of establishing a biobank of samples for use in cardiac disease research. The patients are informed that “The purpose of the Bart’s Bioresource is to allow research into diseases of the heart and circulation (cardiovascular research). The Bart’s Bioresource is supported by the National Institute for Health Research, which is part of the National Health Service (NHS). The Bart’s Bioresource will be very valuable because it will help us to find new ways of identifying, treating and preventing diseases of the heart and circulation.”
