ABSTRACT
This article focuses on stem-cell workers. As California gears up to become a world force in research on human embryonic stem cells, European scientists are banding together, buoyed by recent changes in Spanish and French law. The European Stem Cell Network held its inaugural meeting in Seville, Spain, on 12 November. It brought together scientists from 14 European nations and Israel in a bid to promote collaboration. Europe has been deeply divided over stem cell research, but an in creasing number of countries are permitting the work.
