Traceability in stem cell research: from participant sample to induced pluripotent stem cell and back

Written by Regenerative Medicine

In this Special Report exclusively free for RegMedNet members to access, Michael Morrison, Linda Briceño Moraia & Jane C Steele from University of Birmingham and University of Oxford (UK) discuss a traceability system developed for the Stem cells for Biological Assays of Novel drugs and prediCtive toxiCology (StemBANCC) consortium that provides full traceability of biological material for biobanking, whilst ensuring ethical and legal requirements for protecting privacy are met. Sharing data and biological samples is necessary for the stem cell field to progress as efficiently and effectively as possible, and ultimately bring therapies to patients faster. However, this requires biobanks...
