A fall 2009 Boston Globe magazine article surveys the state of the art of stem cell research and offers a glimpse of the future.
On July 7, 2009, the National Institutes of Health issued new policy guidelines for federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research. Soon after, in December 2009, the NIH announced its approval of 13 new stem cell lines
for funding, including 11 lines developed at Children’s Hospital Boston. M. William Lensch, PhD, from the Stem Cell Program at Children’s applauds the NIH’s decision in this blog post.
