The article reports on the awarding of the Scientific Excellence through Exploration and Development (SEED) Grants to several human embryonic stem cell (hESC) studies in California. The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC), governing board of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, gave the grants to 20 academic and non-profit research centers. The SEED Grants are intended to urge researchers into the field of hESC studies. The ICOC will approve 25 more grants in March 2007.
