The University of Michigan Welcomes Passage of Proposal 2
Date:11/5/2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- University of Michigan executive officers and faculty issued statements this morning regarding the passage of Proposal 2, the amendment to the Michigan Constitution that allows new embryonic stem cell lines to be derived from embryos that have been created for fertility treatment purposes. The embryos affected by the amendment would otherwise be discarded, unless donated with informed consent.

Proposal 2, approved by voters in the Nov. 4, 2008 general election, overturns a 1978 Michigan law that prohibited creation of new stem cell lines from discarded embryos. The amendment will take effect Dec. 19, 2008. Prior to passage of Proposal 2, Michigan has been one of the most restrictive states in the country with respect to embryonic stem cell research.

Mary Sue Coleman, President of the University of Michigan:

"The passage of Proposal 2 by Michigan voters signals an exciting new era for scientific research and innovation in our state. By expanding research with the creation of new embryonic stem cells, University of Michigan scientists can broaden their pursuit of therapies and cures for medical disorders that touch the lives of thousands of Michigan families.

"We will now build on our already strong reputation for adult stem cell research with an equally committed approach to embryonic stem cell research. We are proud to be one of the country's leading research universities, and this endorsement by voters will strengthen our ability not only to improve the health of our communities, but also to boost the intellectual and economic vitality that is critical to the future of our region."

DR. ROBERT KELCH, Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs:

"By passing Proposal 2, the citizens of Michigan have voiced their hope for the future of biomedical research, their confidence in our scientists' talents, and their desire for our state to be known as a welcoming environment
