University of Nebraska May Restrict Stem Cell Use
19 November 2009 2:33 pm
Nebraska citizens don't like the open-ended new Obama policy on research with human embryonic stem cells. So in response to public pressure, the University of Nebraska board of regents will vote tomorrow on whether to limit its researchers to the cell lines allowed under President Bush:
... if it approves the restrictions — some opponents of the research say they have the votes, though others remain doubtful — the University of Nebraska would become the first such state institution in the country to impose limits on stem cell research that go beyond what state and federal laws allow, university officials say.
For weeks, the Nebraska board of regents has been the focus of a fierce campaign by opponents of embryonic stem cell research, most recently by a flood of e-mail and telephone calls, a petition drive and radio advertisements.
Nebraska law already prohibits state funding of research on non-Bush-approved lines.
