Who is Eligible to Donate?

We accept blood and skin tissue submissions from countries all over the globe!

Submission Requirements:

- Must be affected by a heritable disease or chromosomal abnormality

- We encourage all unaffected family members to donate, as long as at least one affected person is also donating a sample

- It is highly encouraged to submit medical documents that verify the heritable disease/chromosomal abnormality for the affected person:

  • the more clinical information that is submitted with a blood or tissue donation, the more valuable this sample is to researchers!
  • the most common medical documents we receive are genetic testing results and physician summary letters
  • unaffected family members do not need to submit medical documents, unless they share a common variant with the affected person and would like to disclose this information
