GESCR - Human Stem Cell Research

The Human Gamete, Embryo and Stem Cell Research (GESCR) Committee functions as the Stem Cell Research Oversight (SCRO) Committee for UCSF.

For the purpose of compliance with government and UCSF regulations, the term “human stem cell research” includes all research involving human embryonic stem cells (hESC), induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, neural progenitor cells, human embryos, human gametes and other potentially pluripotent cells. See the Research Requiring GESCR Review page for more info and definitions.
