Stuck on Band-Aids, 'cause Band-Aids ...

From Popular Science, plans to build a medical research system that

will give donors an unprecedented degree of control over their cells

BioTrust's automated process will enable donors to control how their tissue is used and to reap greater benefits from donation. During the consent process, donors will select the studies that they do or do not want done on their tissues, and the computer system will store that data along with the details of their samples.

They'll surely need 'sticky' policies.
