Establishing the UK Stem Cell Bank
Following reports into stem cell research by the Chief Medical
Officer and the House of Lords Select Committee in 2002, the Bank
was established with a grant from the MRC and BBSRC in January
2003. Termed Phase I funding this ran from 2003 until 2006.
Details of Phase I can be found in the 2003 – 2005 Progress
Report. The Bank was awarded a further grant from the
Research Councils in 2006 with Phase II funding running from
2006 until 2011. Details of the progress made in Phase II can be
found in the 2006 - 2010 Progress Report.
