Oklahoma Blood Institute recently launched “Bio-Linked,” a groundbreaking software system developed exclusively by OBI to match donors with the nation’s most promising medical research. The cutting-edge technology allows donors to sign up for Bio-Linked at all Oklahoma Blood Institute donor center kiosks when they give blood. Any Oklahoma Blood Institute donor can also sign up for Bio-Linked online at my.bio-linked.org. At any given time in the United States, nearly 16,000 clinical studies are occurring. Progress is often delayed because scientists cannot locate people willing to participate in research.
