Give blood for cardiovascular research

The Heart Research Institute and the Charles Perkins Centre are studying the processes involved in the formation of blood clots.

A better understanding of how clots form will increase our knowledge of blood clot formation in healthy individuals and individuals with cardiovascular disease, and may also lead to new preventative and therapeutic drugs for heart attacks and strokes.

What's involved?

Blood will be collected at the Charles Perkins Centre. Participants will receive a reimbursement for their travel/parking costs.


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • blood donors need to be aged between 18 and 60 years and not currently taking anti-clotting or anti-inflammatory medication. These include non-prescription drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Nurofen). We accept some individuals who are unable to give blood at the Red Cross Blood Bank (conditions apply).
