Statement: The New York Stem Cell Foundation on lifting ban of federal funds for stem cell research
Date:4/29/2011

The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) applauds the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia's decision to dismiss District Court Judge Royce Lamberth's ruling against the use of public funds for embryonic stem cell research.

"This is an important day for stem cell research and the nation's scientific community. Most importantly, this is a victory for the patients around the world suffering from incurable diseases," says Susan L. Solomon, CEO of NYSCF, which is a leading voice in stem cell research, advocacy and policy; conducts groundbreaking scientific research in its own laboratory; supports scientists through grants and fellowships; and convenes symposia and conferences. "The time has come for our leaders to put progress before politics on this issue and remove all of the remaining, unnecessary limitations on human embryonic stem cell research conducted with the best ethical and medical practices. We need to put an end to the constant uncertainty facing the field of embryonic stem cell research so scientists can get on with the serious business of research and maintain the kind of momentum that will lead to cures for the most intractable diseases facing mankind."
