Irish Government Funds Stem Cell Research Initiative

The Irish Times notes that the Irish government is funding a stem cell research initiative, including the construction of a new Regenerative Medicine Institute at Galway. As I've mentioned before, you can track progress in any scientific field by the number of buildings being built...so the more, the merrier from where I stand. Meanwhile, other articles note the funding difficulties faced by stem cell researchers in the US, all due to restrictive legislation - almost a ban for all practical intents and purposes - imposed by the current administration.
