ABSTRACT
The article presents a report on human embryonic stem-cell research in California. A $3-billion programme that intends to make California a world centre for human embryonic stem-cell research got the green light from voters on November 2, but some fear repercussions. The measure was conceived by several California film producers and businessmen with family histories of diabetes. They were frustrated by Bush's ban on federal funding for work on newly created embryonic stem cell lines, which he implemented in August 2001. this scale is an experiment whose national implications could be profound. One concern is that "Proposition 71" could weaken programmes in other parts of the country by luring talented researchers to California.
