UCSD Guidelines For Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research
The UCSD guidelines apply to any research or teaching use of Human Embryonic Stem Cells, defined for the purpose of this document as any: culture-derived, human pluripotent stem cell population that is capable of: (1) sustained propagation in culture; and (2) self-renewal to produce daughter cells with equivalent developmental potential.

UCSD Guidelines For Separating Costs and Materials for Research on Non-Registry hESC Lines from Those for Federally Funded Research
UCSD Researchers may conduct research on human embryonic stem cells and their derivatives which are not on the Federal Registry in UCSD research space provided that researchers adhere to the guidelines for separating costs.

Costs and materials for non-registry human embryonic stem cell research projects must be separate from costs and materials for federally funded research. To summarize, federal resources may not be used to support projects on non-registry hESC lines.
