SCRO Scope and Responsibility

 

Does your stem cell research involve any of the following? 

The UConn/UConn Health SCRO Committee reviews all of the work below, at all schools, colleges, campuses, and research arms of the University of Connecticut/UConn Health, regardless of the source of funding. This work may not begin and external funds will not be released until SCRO Committee approval is granted.

 

1. All research involving human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), including in vitro research involving the generation of gametes, embryos, or other totipotent cells and in vivo research involving the implantation into prenatal animals or into the central nervous system of post-natal animals (SCRO approval is required by the State of Connecticut and University policy.)

 

2. In vitro human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) research involving the generation of gametes, embryos, or other totipotent cells (SCRO approval is required by University policy.)

 

3. In vivo research involving implantation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) into prenatal animals or into the central nervous system of post-natal animals (SCRO approval is required by University policy.)

 

4. Stem cell research project funded by the State of Connecticut through the Regenerative Medicine Research Fund or Connecticut Bioscience Innovation Fund, including those that do not use human embryonic stem cells (SCRO approval is required by the State of Connecticut.)
