U.S. Appeals Court Upholds Legality of Stem Cell Research
24 August 2012 10:58 am
A 3-year battle over the legality of stem cell research in the United States may finally be essentially over. This morning, a federal appeals court upheld a lower court's July 2011 ruling that dismissed a lawsuit claiming that National Institutes of Health funding for research on human embryonic stem cells violates a law banning federal funds for research that harms or destroys human embryos. "Because we conclude that the district court committed no error, we affirm the order and judgment under review," the three-member panel of judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit wrote in its 27-page unanimous decision. ScienceInsider will have more on the decision later today.
