Public dialogue:

Stem cells dialogue

December 2008

BBSRC and the Medical Research Council, with funding from Sciencewise Expert Resource Centre, commissioned a consortium, led by the British Market Research Bureau (BMRB), to conduct a public and stakeholder dialogue on stem cell research in the UK to identify peoples' views.

The study, during summer 2008, involved 200 members of the public who participated in  workshops in London, Cardiff, Bristol, Newcastle and Edinburgh. In addition, nearly 50 stakeholders were interviewed from fields such as science, medicine, industry, ethics and religion.

The findings were published on 17 December 2008 and announced in a media release (see related links).
