GOV SUPPORTS STEM CELL BANKS
(2007-01-05)
(wgvu) - Governor Jennifer Granholm has signed into
law several bills designed to help create a statewide network of
umbilical cord blood stem cell banks.
The legislation also requires the state to develop and
distribute informational material about the stem cell banks.
The cells would be made available to transplant centers working
on treatments for spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis and
other ailments.
The new measures are designed to boost adult and umbilical cord
stem cell research.
Granholm and some Democrats in the state Legislature want to go
further and loosen restrictions on embryonic stem cell research in
Michigan.
