Stem Cell Research Oversight (SCRO)
Review and approval by the SCRO Committee is required for all research involving derivation of hSC lines, regardless of the source of funding or the applicability of state or federal law. It is required in addition to other approvals that may be required by law or institutional policy, including but not limited to Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs), and Institutional Biosafety Committees (IBCs). Approval from the ESCRO Committee will be contingent on the satisfaction of all other required approvals.
The oversight process for this type of research is being developed. Check back for updates.
