On April 29, a three-member panel of the U. S. Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. ruled that the government can continue to fund embryonic stem cell research.
The panel “ruled that opponents are not likely to succeed in their lawsuit to stop federal financing of stem cell research and overturned a district judge’s order that would have blocked the funding. The panel reversed an opinion issued last August by U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, who said the research likely violates the law against federal funding of embryo destruction.”
In other news, stem cell therapy may get a boost, however indirectly, with a new method created by University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers.
Disease in a dish, anyone?
