India Making Progress in Stem Cell Research

The Indian research establishment is moving wholeheartedly ahead into stem cell-based regenerative medicine. This report covers an institute working on regenerative therapies to treat corneal blindness through regrowth of damaged tissue. Elsewhere, another article notes the start of a government-funded research effort targetting stem cell therapies in neurobiology and cardiac medicine. Meanwhile, US stem cell research - despite demonstrated cures working in the laboratory - is stunted and blocked by existing and threatened anti-research legislation.
