Embryonic Stem Cell Funding In The US

The Houston Chronicle provides an itemized list of some of the more noteworthy public and academic embryonic stem cell research initiatives around the United States. Private research initiatives probably represent a similar level of expenditure, but never get as much press. Also noted are those locations that prohibit this and other promising fields leading to regenerative medicine: "Three states have old laws expressly prohibiting research on human embryonic stem cells: Nebraska, South Dakota and Louisiana ... Five states have new laws expressly prohibiting therapeutic cloning or research on cloned embryos: Arkansas, Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota and South Dakota."
