Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act
The Wellcome Trust is keen to ensure that stem cell research in the UK is undertaken within a robust regulatory environment that carries public confidence and support. We worked with a number of stakeholders to ensure that the provisions of the new Act enable researchers to continue to carry out cutting-edge stem cell and reproductive research within a tightly regulated environment that maintains public confidence.
