UPDATE: A transcript of the talk is now available. (Scroll down to "The Future of Stem Cell Research" box.)
Ever since U.S. district court judge Royce Lamberth dismissed a case that threatened to ban federal funding for all human embryonic stem cell research, scientists and others in the biomedical community have wondered what's next for the field. Today, Stanford law professor Hank Greely, JD, joins a live online chat hosted by Science to discuss the ups and downs of stem cell policy over the past decade and the latest legal ruling.
For a quick primer on the issue, read Greely's informative blog post on Lamberth's decision and then tune into the ScienceLive chat at 12 p.m. Pacific Time.
