Stem Cell Future

What does President Obama's reversal of the ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research mean to the scientists doing that research? Yesterday on KIRO/Seattle, I spoke with Dr. Chuck Murry, Professor of Pathology and Co-Director of the University of Washington's Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine.

He explained how this will allow him to continue his work on harnessing the potential of adult and embryonic stem cells to regenerate cardiac muscle, what the timeline might be for seeing results from new stem cell science, and where researchers go to get those embryos in the first place.
