Stem Cell Research Oversight

MUSC leadership has charged the Stem Cell Research Oversight (SCRO) committee with oversight responsibilities for all research projects that fall under the Research Using Human Stem Cells Policy. The scope of the MUSC Research Using Human Stem Cells Policy is limited to a well-defined subset of life sciences research that involves the derivation or use of human pluripotent stem cells at MUSC.  The aim of this policy is to help ensure that such research is conducted with the highest ethical and scientific research standards, and in compliance with all applicable federal and state regulations, MUSC policies, and the requirements of extramural research sponsors.
