Hopefully we'll see a lot more of this. Science unhindered by the superstitions of a dumb **** in the white house.
Good for you, Mr. Obama. Glad to see the idiotic faith-based decisions of the last administration being reversed.
Green light for US stem cell work
Many believe stem cell research holds out great promise of new treatments
US regulators have cleared the way for the world's first study on human embryonic stem cell therapy.
The move comes three days after the inauguration of President Barack Obama who has been a strong supporter of embryonic stem cell research. Since 2001 there have been limits on federal funding for stem cells.
Geron Corp, the biotech company behind the research, plans to initiate a clinical trial in patients paralysed due to spinal cord injury. The BBC predicted last week that the White House would reverse the restrictions placed on stem cell research once President Obama took office.
The US Food and Drug Administration gave the go ahead for the research on Friday.
