NY Gov. Paterson renews commitment to stem cell research in visit to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Date:10/9/2009

Cold Spring Harbor, NY -- On a visit to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) Thursday afternoon, New York Governor David A. Paterson pledged his continuing support for stem cell research after receiving a briefing from a panel of Long Island scientists engaged in projects involving stem cells.

The Governor recalled that in January 2005, in his first press conference after being elected New York's lieutenant governor, he publicly committed himself to the advance of stem cell research in New York; it would be one of his top four priorities, he stated at that time. The others were the development of alternative energy sources, the problem of domestic violence, and the promotion of business enterprises run by women and members of minority groups. His commitment to stem cell research and the other priorities, he affirmed yesterday, have not changed in the 17 months since he became governor.

"We have a lot of plans that have undergone reprocessing because of the continuing financial and fiscal crises, but we're continuing to fund stem cell research at the state level at a rate of between $50 million and $60 million per year," Paterson said. The Governor has spearheaded an effort to commit $600 million in state funds over the next decade to advance stem cell science within the state. Since 2008, over $165 million has been allocated by the Empire State Stem Cell Board.

The Governor's visit to CSHL provided an opportunity for him to receive briefings from CSHL President Bruce Stillman, Ph.D., and four faculty scientists: Drs. Linda Van Aelst, Grigori Enikolopov and Marja Timmermans, and Clinical Fellow Johannes Zuber, M.D.

Gov. Paterson, who was joined by State Health Commissioner Richard F. Daines, M.D., who chairs the Empire State Stem Cell Board, and by Assemblyman Charles D. Levine of Glen Cove, also heard from Dr. Samuel Stanley, President of Stony Brook University and Dr. Ira S. Cohen, a Stony Brook cardiologist and re
