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

for life sciences discovery and industry.

"Now, it is up to us in the scientific community to build upon what the voters have given us, and to maintain their trust and respect by carrying out this research with the utmost regard for both ethical and legal boundaries. All of us at the University of Michigan are committed to that goal, no matter what our field of research.

But we do know that scientific research is what has brought us to today's heights of medical achievement. And only through further research, free from undue restrictions, will we realize even greater gains. The voters of Michigan deserve thanks for sharing that vision with us."

SEAN MORRISON, Director of the Center for Stem Cell Biology:

"The people of Michigan voted to support science, innovation, and potentially life-saving research. They saw through the fear and misinformation from the special interest groups that opposed Proposal 2. This is a great day for the state that allows us to strengthen our life sciences sector and to advance critical medical research with energy and hope.

"Proposal 2 will allow research in Michigan that is already occurring throughout most of the rest of the country, while entrenching restrictions in the state constitution that ensure that the research is performed ethically and under oversight mandated by federal law. The University of Michigan will launch new research programs that we expect to advance the science of stem cell biology and the treatment of patients."

DR. EVA FELDMAN, Director the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute:

"It is so gratifying that the people of Michigan understand the critical role that embryonic stem cell research can play in the health and well-being of our state. They recognize its promise to find cures and new treatments for current
