ABSTRACT
The article reports on the involvement of New Jersey in the stem cell research business when it awards $5 million grants to 20 research groups in December 2005. There will be additional funds for stem cell research centers in 2006 once a pair of bills introduced by Assemblyman Neil M. Cohen becomes law. The New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology will award its $5 million grant at a special meeting at Thomas Edison State College in Trenton.
