ABSTRACT
This article discusses various issues related to stem cell research in San Diego, California. One thing San Diego's prominent leaders of research institutions and other members of the state's new oversight committee for embryonic stem cell research can count on is that 2005 will be different and challenging. The work is controversial, because it involves the destruction of embryos to create new lines of cells. Scientists say because the cells can be turned into any type of cell, they hold great promise for treating devastating diseases. But the stakes are high. Supporters of embryonic stem cell research have repeatedly said that errors by the agency in terms of ethics, oversight, research and accountability could stifle continued funding.
