I have been asked to take part in a vaccine trial to assess the safety

I am a medical student so I understand most of the implications of this 
but there are some things that I have been unable to find out about. 
Firstly what is a vero cell? Secondly this appears a perfectly 
reasonable trial to me, would anyone who knows more than me care to
