Marshall and Medical Research
As a healing institution, Marshall Medical Center supports medical research to find cures for deadly and debilitating disease. Marshall does not perform abortions nor collect fetal tissue. Marshall does have a relationship with StemExpress, limited to the following initiatives:
o Procurement of cord blood from women who give birth and do not wish to bank it themselves. Cord blood is a byproduct of afterbirth and would otherwise be disposed of as medical waste.
o Marshall’s laboratory receives and processes blood samples sent to StemExpress from hospitals and universities nationwide; our lab performs the infectious disease screening these samples must undergo.
Marshall advocates ethical and compliant medical research that is saving and improving lives around the world.
