In Massachusetts, an amendment prohibiting expenditures for embryonic stem cell research has been defeated. The first round of grants to universities and nonprofit organizations has been distributed by New York's Empire State Stem Cell Trust. In California, the legal battle over funding for stem cell research has ended favoring the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine.
