This concluding chapter briefly highlights the main results of the preceding chapters and poses some vital questions that are still unanswered in the field of human tissue research: How can the regulatory efforts of Member states be translated to the supranational level of the European Union and the Council of Europe? How can diverging standards in the handling of new and existing tissue collections be avoided? How are individual interests to be weighed against the public good? Finally, should a joint regulatory approach be established in the European Union?

Keywords: European regulation; European harmonization; human tissue research; individual interests; public good
