Ethics in!

Brad has sent through final information for Stage 2 ethics clearance.  We included a skin biopsy protocol in case the fibroid cells are unviable. Unfortunately, when dealing with primary cells, nothing is certain and there is a possibility that the initial cells are contaminated or do not recover from the freezing process. As such, we have included ‘Plan B’ to ensure we can move forward with the project and establish a new batch of primary cells for immortalisation.

The ethics documents were formally submitted through the Ethics Review Manager. Hopefully, I have addressed all project aspects and provided sufficient information for approval.  Fingers crossed!
