Dean Richardson joins nation’s deans and urges congress to “Act Now” to continue stem cell research

Eighty-eight leaders of the nation's medical schools have signed an ad urging Congress to act now to make sure that lifesaving stem cell research can continue in the wake of recent legal actions prohibiting further federal funding. The ad asks that lawmakers resolve the issue "once and for all" by passing legislation ensuring "continued federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research under the NIH's rigorous ethical guidelines." The original ad appeared in the Washington Post on Sept. 3 and will appear in Politico on Sept. 14 and 16.
