Project Title:

Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research Advisory Committee
PIN: BLSX-K-05-04-A        

Major Unit:

Division on Earth and Life Studies
Institute of Medicine

Sub Unit: Board on Life Sciences
Board on Health Sciences Policy

RSO: Fagen, Adam

Subject/Focus Area: Biology and Life Sciences; Health and Medicine; Policy for Science and Technology


Project Scope
The Advisory Committee will meet 2 to 3 times per year over a period of 36 months to (1) monitor and review scientific developments and changing ethical, legal, and policy issues related to human embryonic stem cell research, (2) discuss the need for revisions to the Guidelines for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research, and (3) prepare periodic reports to update the Guidelines as needed. Minimal but necessary changes may be issued as letter reports, but more extensive modifications may necessitate the preparation of traditional reports to fully provide the rationale for the changes.

Sources of information that will be considered by the Advisory Committee will include public symposia organized by the Committee to review developments in stem cell science and how these impact the ethical and policy issues surrounding hES cell research.


The project is sponsored by The Ellison Medical Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

The project has a duration of 36 months.
