ABSTRACT
The article reports that Californian voters may have authorised the spending of $3 billion of public money on stem cell research over the next decade, but opponents of the plan are determined to make it as hard as possible to spend the money. Activists who oppose research on human embryonic stem cells claim that California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) is unconstitutional under California law. The CIRM officials are now trying to convince philanthropists to donate up to $50 million so that it can begin awarding grants, initially to train young scientists.
