The Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research reprints an overview of the funding and legislative situation for embryonic stem cell research. It reinforces some of my own points: it is the threat of criminalization at the state and Federal level that is damaging research, not limitations on public funding. "Drs. Bob and Larry Goldstein both said uncertainty surrounding the politics of stem cell research is making young scientists wary about entering the field ... It shouldn't be a surprise that there are so few applications, because people are nervous about pursuing this. What if they make this illegal next year?" If you support regenerative medicine, now is certainly the time to stand up and say so.
