Living with allergies or asthma? You can make a difference.
BRI’s Allergy and Asthma Biorepository is a confidential list of people with allergies and/or asthma, who are willing to donate a blood sample and provide health information for scientific research.
Our scientists study donated samples to better understand the causes and long-term health effects of allergies, asthma and immune-mediated diseases, as well as to explore better treatment options. All of the information gathered is kept confidential, and samples and health information are coded with numbers, not names.
Participate in Allergy and Asthma Research
We are currently enrolling children of all ages and adults with physician- diagnosed food and/or environmental allergies. We are especially looking for people with a history anaphylaxis and severe allergies including:
|Food Allergies||Environmental Allergies||Other Allergies and Reactions|
We are also looking for family members of all ages who do not have allergies, asthma or other immune-mediated or autoimmune diseases, to join our Healthy Control biorepository.
Participating in research typically involves a 45- minute to -one- hour visit to BRI in downtown Seattle. Our team will collect a blood sample and ask questions about your personal and family medical history. All samples and information are kept confidential. Learn more: Biorepository FAQ

BRI's Vision of Immune Health
Immunology to Change Lives: Where We're Going in 2023
BRI was formed with a clear plan: First, answer key fundamental questions about the immune system. Then, build on those answers to change lives. This is a very exciting time because we’re reaching that second stage of the plan.
