Want to help advance research on cardiovascular disease? Join the Biobank project.

To take part, you must complete a series of steps. First, you register on site. Please bring along your red MHI card and a list of medications you take. Also, be ready to provide your medical history and your family’s medical history (parents, siblings, children).

You must sign a consent form to participate in the project. You are then interviewed by a nurse and give a blood sample. Afterward, the Biobank team processes your sample (it extracts DNA, stores the sample and provides quality control).

By taking part, you help expand scientific knowledge of cardiovascular health.
