The Outlook for Stem Cell Research in New York and the Nation


Rockefeller Institute Forum, May 11, 2009



This Public Policy Forum followed on the heels of new federal guidelines detailing the Obama administration's plans for government funding of stem cell research, coming off a period of what Institute Senior Fellow James W. Fossett called "federal gridlock" during the Bush administration. The wide-ranging discussion covered scientific, ethical, political and legal topics of concern for stem cell research across the nation, and included a report on New York's current status with regard to government-funded stem cell study.

Dr. Philpott provided an overview of current scientific thinking on stem cells. View his presentation.
