Adult donor material


Adult donor material 

We recruit thousands of new donors to the Anthony Nolan stem cell register every year, ready to be matched with patients in need of a transplant. Our register began in 1974 when it was the world’s first, and now has over 850,000 healthy adult donors 

We work with a Research Donor Panel made up of carefully selected and consented donors from the main register who are available to donate for research. 

Our extensive experience of facilitating transplants means we can deliver high-quality, ethically approved starting material according to your requirements.
