"Our task force has captured the most current, comprehensive thinking on translational stem cell research. The result -- these new guidelines -- will be valuable for all members of the stem cell community," said Dr. Fiona Watt, president of the ISSCR.
Patients, medical researchers, regulators and those interested should visit the ISSCR's Web site at http://www.ISSCR.org to see the Guidelines, a handbook for patients and more information on stem cell research. In addition, the content of the Guidelines is digested in the Commentary article authored by the task force, which is available online at http://www.cellstemcell.com/.
