International Database on the Legal and Socio-Ethical
Issues in Stem Cell Research


StemGen is a research database of international, regional and national normative instruments concerning the socio-ethical and legal aspects of stem cell research and related therapies. It was created as a free tool for the dissemination of information relevant to policy-making, the goal being to make the information accessible to as many people as possible without geographic or cost barriers.

A unique feature of StemGen is the STEM CELL WORLD MAP, which describes the policy approaches adopted in over 50 countries.
