UM: Stem Cells

The Lansing State Journal talks to researchers in the wake of voters passing Proposal 2, which lifted a statewide ban on embryonic stem cell research. Says Sean Morrison, director of UM’s Center for Stem Cell Biology: ”The day after the election, the university started getting phone calls from patients who wanted to donate embryos that could no longer be used…I hope that, in a year’s time, we’ll have some research programs in place that will have a chance of changing the way people think about the embryonic stem cell program.” [Source]
