Embryonic Stem Cell Research Required Training
All study personnel at NYU School of Medicine performing research involving the use of human embryonic stem cells or human pluripotent stem cells must complete the embryonic stem cell research oversight committee’s research operating procedures training. Study personnel include NYU School of Medicine faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and students, as well as visiting scholars and partnering researchers.
After completing the training, you must certify that you have read and understood the information presented before beginning research. It is the principal investigator’s responsibility to ensure that all study personnel complete the training. Conducting any study involving human embryonic stem cells or human pluripotent stem cells is also contingent upon research protocol approval by our committee.
In addition, all personnel must read and agree to NYU School of Medicine’s embryonic stem cell research oversight committee’s policy before starting research.
