Connecting with members of the community helps researchers make discoveries that improve human health.

If you have experienced an illness, or cared for someone with an illness, we invite you to apply to join the WEHI Consumer Program and help us to advance medical research.

Donate blood for research

Our scientists need small blood samples from a large number of healthy donors to compare against blood samples from patients suffering from a disease.

By joining the Volunteer Blood Donor Registry you can contribute to medical research aimed at preventing, treating and curing disease.

Ethics and integrity in research

We consider ethics to be an integral part of good scientific practice.

For us, ethical conduct in human research begins with the values and principles set out by the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007).
