Close a Stem Cell Project

February 10, 2017

  • Send an email to RECO@wusm.wustl.edu referencing the project number
  • Indicate the reason for the closure. For example:
    • No longer using hESCs
    • Lost funding
    • Project completed
    • Leaving Washington University
  • Describe your plans for the hESCs:
    • Destruction
    • Transfer to another Washington University investigator
    • Take to new institution
  • ESCRO will review the terms of the MTA. Inconsistencies between the PI’s proposed plan and the terms of the MTA will be communicated to the PI.
  • The ESCRO Chair will approve the closure and your file will be closed.
