Cambridge Reproduction


Complex problems demand multidisciplinary approaches, and the G-SCBEM project involves a large number of experts and stakeholders, from a wide range of disciplines.

We are indebted to everybody who has contributed their time and expertise to the development of the Code of Practice for
the Generation and Use of Human Stem Cell-Based Embryo Models

The G-SCBEM project team have been in discussions with the research community and policymakers throughout the project. In October and November 2023, the draft governance framework will be circulated to about 35 interested researchers (from the sciences, law and bioethics) for feedback and comment. We will also host a policy workshop in October 2023, at which the main regulators and funders of SCBEM research in the UK will give feedback on the draft governance framework. We are actively seeking feedback from all of these groups and from any other parties with an interest in SCBEM research. If you have a specific interest in SCBEMs and would like to be involved with this project, please contact Christina Rozeik.
