Novus Sanguis

Novus Sanguis is the website of the project co-founded by Professor McGuckin and his team in Newcastle University, Great Britain, and the Foundation Jérôme Lejeune in Paris, France. It aims to use cord blood cells for stem cell research with all the benefits that can bring while being acceptable from a Catholic point of view. Dr Nico Forraz, a parishioner here at Forest Hall, is Prof. McGuckin`s colleague and recently made me aware of this new website.

Bishop Kevin Dunn was eager to support their work. Nico and Colin make regular trips to the Vatican too where there is much interest in this important work.

This looks fantastic. I'll take some of this information to my cynical, atheistic, thinks-catholics-live-in-the-dark-ages biology teacher at school!
