Anthony Nolan Trust

Program support
To fully rebuild and redevelop the bone marrow donor database. The project aims to expand the database, but also at conducting in-depth analysis to match donors with patients. The new system, which will support high resolution typing, will include new search algorithms based on recent medical advances to provide fast and more accurate matching. The new database will contribute towards saving more lives.

The Anthony Nolan Trust is the world’s first register of bone marrow transplant donors. The charity saves lives by matching patients suffering from leukemia and other serious blood disorders with volunteers willing to donate their own bone marrow.
