Stem Cell Science Experts Release Letter Urging US Commitment to ...

The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) joined with other leading scientists to issue an open letter to reiterate the urgent need for U.S. support for all types of stem cell research. The Society is the world's preeminent professional organization of stem cell researchers. The letter is in response to critics who, the authors’ state, are using recent advances in adult stem cell research to advocate for restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. These scientists warn that efforts to favor one arm of stem cell research at the expense of another are based on unsound interpretations of scientific discoveries.
