Stem Cell Alert: Laws and Players
Compiled By Michele Garfinkel
Frequently lost in the policy discussions about human embryonic stem cells research are concrete realities that will determine how quickly such research will result in treatments and cures. Scientists are conducting research. Federal and local legislators are writing laws to broadly support the research. Non-profit health organizations and private companies are funding some of the most cutting-edge approaches. Here we will offer a selection of current research programs, new lawmaking, and happenings away from government and academia that will contribute to useful understandings of stem cells.
