NIH has developed new guidelines to establish policy and procedures under which NIH will fund research in the area of human stem cells, and to help ensure that NIH-funded research in this area is ethically responsible, scientifically worthy, and conducted in accordance with applicable law. These Guidelines are effective on July 7, 2009.
Scientists may determine whether a particular hESC line is eligible for use in NIH-supported research under the new Guidelines by referring to the NIH Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry.
