Areas of Interest

Our History

  • Established in 2006 by Professor Bryan Clarke and Dr Anne Clarke who realised universities and museums had collections of DNA and cells not in a form suitable for the long-term preservation of DNA or of threatened species. They established the charity to respond to this unique gap.
