Once embryonic stem cells are derived in the lab and cultured, they are no longer quite li......

Ever since President Bush forbade research using federal money on embryonic stem-cell cultures created after August 9, 2001, scientists have made few with a handful of existing cultures. The WiCell institute, where Thomson is scientific director, owns six. And though stem cells can theoretically keep growing forever, those cultures were made using old techniques that led to impuriti......
