Healthy Blood Donor Scheme

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Most people are familiar with the idea of donating blood to help people who need life-saving transfusions or regular blood products, but what you might not know is that you can also donate blood for medical research.

Donating blood for research allows us to compare white blood cells (immune cells) of healthy people to those from people with disease. To do this we need blood samples from healthy donors.

The CPI is proud to announce the commencement of the Healthy Blood Donor Scheme, which allows eligible healthy people in the wider community to donate blood that will directly contribute to our research.

If you would like more information please have a look at the Fact Sheet or contact us at

Current locations for donations (by prior arrangement) are:

  • The Canberra Hospital, Canberra
  • Hills Immunology, Sydney
  • The John Curtin School for Medical Research, Australian National University, Canberra
