Stanford General Stem Cell Research Oversight Resources
- SCRO Review Categories Flow Chart (pdf): This flow chart shows the type of review necessary for different types of human stem cell research.
- Stem Cell Matrix (xls): A list of hESC approved for use at Stanford University.
- Somatic Cell Informed Consent for use in Human Stem Cell Research (xls): A template informed consent that meets requirements for developing human therapies from stem cell sources.
- SCRO eProtocol Application (xls): A Word version of the questions in SCRO’s eProtocol application to use for training or for gathering your information prior to submission.
CIRM is working to create a human iPSC Repository and asks that investigators register newly derived stem cell lines. You can see existing Human Stem Cell Lines determined to be "Acceptably Derived" by CIRM at http://www.cirm.ca.gove/CIRMCellLines and Instructions for registration of derived stem cell lines at http://www.cirm.ca.gov/our-funding/stem-cell-regulations-governing-cirm-grants.
Stem Cell Training and Education
The Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Education offers training in basic and advanced stem cell techniques. The training program offers courses in Basic HESC Biology, Reprogramming and Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT), Human ES Cell Derivation and Human Embryology. For more information please visit the HESC Courses page.
CIRM Scholar Training Grants are available for pre-doctoral candidates, post-doctoral researchers and clinical research fellows. More information can be found on the CIRM Scholar Training Grants page.
Those interested in basic biology of human stem cells can visit the NIH page on Stem Cell Basics.
