Some Adult Stem Cell Grants Coming Through

Despite the legislation restricting stem cell research in the US (and a potential ban on a necessary technology for that research), the NIH is making some grants for adult stem cell work. This article at the Alligator notes a $1.3 million grant to go towards research into regenerative tools to repair brain injuries and diseases. The brain is the most important part of the body from a long term healthy life extension point of view - it's the one organ we can't transplant or replace. More sophisticated strategies for repairing and preventing degenerative conditions of the brain will be vital.
