Cord blood banks

Work Package 4  : Cord blood banks

Lead by McGill University (Bartha Knoppers, Rosario Isasi) and Leuven University (Herman Nys, Pascal Borry)


The general objective of WP4 is to study and to increase the understanding of national, regional and international socio-ethical and legal issues arising in the context of umbilical cord blood (CB) research. We will provide policy recommendations with the aim of building a robust ethical and legal framework for the regulation of CB research, banking and clinical applications in Europe.
