Our partners include:
Every day, we take calls from hospitals and transplant centres – in the UK and worldwide – searching for matches for people in need of a lifesaving bone marrow or stem cell transplant. We also work with hospital maternity units to collect blood from umbilical cords and placentas, which we can use for transplants.
We work with other organisations that run donor registers in the UK and across the world. We want to save as many lives as possible so we share our research and ideas on best practice.
NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
We run the Anthony Nolan and NHS Stem Cell Registry, working with NHS Blood and Transplant, the NHS authority responsible for supplying blood for transplants. This is the only UK registry which UK transplant centres can use to find donors for people in need.
National Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Transplant Alliance (NBTA)
We are proud to be part of the NBTA. The alliance, made up of organisations promoting awareness of organ and stem cell donation, aims to get more black and minority ethnic people to join our register.
The Anthony Nolan Research Institute works with many other centres of excellence in the UK, in particular with the Royal Free Hospital, University College London, Imperial College at Hammersmith Hospital, the Royal Marsden Hospital, King’s College Hospital and Nottingham Trent University.
Our Scientific Director, Professor Madrigal, is the current President of the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation and our Director of Bioinformatics and Deputy Director of Research, Professor Steven Marsh, is a former President of the European Federation for Immunogenetics.
Run for students, by students, there are now Marrow groups in more than 40 universities across the UK. Their aim: to give every student the chance to join our register.
Through our Register and Be a Lifesaver (R&Be) programme, we work with NHS Blood and Transplant to talk directly to young people about saving lives. Volunteers run sessions in colleges to debunk myths, raise awareness and get 16–18 year-olds excited about the possibility of becoming potential donors.
