Research blood donors

Please note that this program seeks, for the moment, individuals from the Québec City area.

Have you been excluded from donating blood, temporarily or permanently, because of an unfulfilled donor qualification criterion?

You are not an active blood donor, but you would like to contribute to research advances in the field of blood?

If you are in one of these situations, are at least 18 years of age and in good health, you could help us improve:

  • the quality of blood components given to patients; and
  • the efficacy of services offered to the hospitals and to the Québec population.


By registering with the Research Blood Donor Registry.If you register, you might be invited to participate in one of our research and development projects. By doing so, you will contribute to the improvement of the Québec blood system.

We are constantly seeking individuals willing to participate, on a voluntary basis, in our research and development projects. Notably, registration to the Research Blood Donor Registry does not imply that your participation will be mandatory. In addition, you have the option of withdrawing from the Registry at any time, by simple verbal notice. Finally, each registration request is handled confidentially.
