Research Blood Donor Program

Research Blood Donor Program

BLOODWORKS NORTHWEST HAS AN OPTION FOR PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO DONATE BLOOD FOR RESEARCH. Or if travel or some other issue has affected your eligibility to donate blood, you might be eligible to donate for research as a way to give back to your community.

We’re seeking willing and healthy volunteers to provide blood samples that will support studies underway at a number of research institutions.

DO YOU WANT TO HELP SCIENTISTS ACCELERATE THEIR SEARCH TO UNLOCK THE CURES FOR THINGS LIKE HEART DISEASE AND CANCER? Your donation provides medical researchers with blood components and biological products to advance the development of potentially lifesaving therapies and treatments.

1. Screening interview—to qualify you as a donor
2. Schedule an appointment
3. Donate

Once qualified as a donor, you may be invited to donate multiple times.

Reimbursement is provided for your time and availability.

With more than 70 years of Northwest history sustaining the community blood supply, donors are assured that their donations will be safely performed by our knowledgeable staff under the direction of a physician, and meeting the highest regulatory standards.
