Divided We Fail: The Need for National Stem Cell Funding: An Analysis of State and Federal Funding for Stem Cell Research

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

States have made valiant attempts to advance stem cell research, but they cannot replace federal support. States lack the revenue, infrastructure, and incentives to properly promote basic research on their own, especially with federal policies that limit collaboration, impede their funding, and fail to provide guidelines for moving forward with research.

Our outdated stem cell policy remains a national problem requiring a national solution. By adopting uniform research standards and supporting research on any ethically derived stem cell lines, the federal government can provide the strong leadership needed to advance the science and fulfill the promise of stem cells.
