EBiSC2 – A sustainable European Bank for induced pluripotent Stem Cells

Project description

Europe’s ethical stem cell bank is exponentially expanding its utility and reach

Stem cell research holds tremendous promise yet has historically raised ethical issues about the moral aspects of using human embryos. Over the last decade, a surprising discovery has evolved to change the face of stem cell research. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are adult human somatic cells, typically skin or blood cells, that are genetically reprogrammed to an embryonic stem cell-like state. Europe now maintains an iPSC bank and EBiSC2 is working on the framework that will boost its diversity, standardisation and ability to serve academic and commercial research with a sustainable business plan.
