Human Stem Cell Oversight

The University of Pittsburgh’s hSCRO Committee is to ensure that all federal and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania regulations governing the conduct of human embryonic stem cell research are met and that other human stem cell research is conducted in accordance with the general principles expressed in the National Academies’ Guidelines for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research, with the policies and procedures adopted by the hSCRO Committee, and with other relevant University of Pittsburgh research policies.

Investigators are required to complete the CITI Human Stem Cell course in conjunction with a submission of a research protocol to the hSCRO.  Visit the Human Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee (hSCRO) website for more information. No recertification required.
