Human diploid cell strain appraised

Jeremy collaborated with fellow ABAA member and tax lawyer, Bruce Barnett, on the appraisal of frozen ampoules of the human diploid cell strain WI-38 donated to the Coriell Institute for Medical Research by the developer of the cell strain, Leonard Hayflick. WI-38 is among the most widely-used, and the most highly characterized normal human cell population. This may be one of the first appraisals of living material for donation to a non-profit organization.
