Clinical Resources

Potential stem cell-derived therapies are advancing from the laboratory towards the clinic. These cell-based approaches present novel considerations for clinicians and the public alike. The ISSCR is dedicated to helping educate and inform clinicians, review boards, and the public with current, scientifically-grounded information on these advances and their application(s).
