I have interviewed Drs. Elliot Lander and Mark Berman of Cell Surgical Network in past (Part 1, Part 2) and I raised some concerns about the network in a follow up Part 3 post, which was replied to in a lengthy comment by Dr. Berman. In the course of this dialogue it was indicated that Cell Surgical Network had an IRB through the International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS).
The point of today’s blog post is to provide an update on the IRB situation.
Cell Surgical Network has informed me that the ICMS IRB has been cancelled.
Drs. Berman and Lander now have some IRBs through a different organization, the International Cell Surgical Society (ICSS).
