ABSTRACT
A letter exploring the issues surrounding open source stem cell science and research in Great Britain is presented. It reflects on how British regulations on stem cell science favor basic research but restrict commercial investment. It provides an overview of the British governance system for the use of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) in scientific research. Information on the actions taken by the UK Stem Cell Bank (UKSCB) in relation to stem cell research is also provided.
