Databases for stem cell research

What is it about?

We proposed a plan to foster more collaboration in stem cell research. We thought creating a database for such research would be useful, or a least harmonizing data repositories.

Why is it important?

We felt there were gaps in capturing and exploiting past stem cell research results.

Perspectives

Dr Sean Ekins
Collaborations in Chemistry

We proposed at a minimum the creation of minimum information about stem cell experiments (MIASCE). We proposed also that commercial databases could be readily used for storing such stem cell related data to foster collaborations.
