The article reports that TechTown is starting a global hunt for stem cell firms from around the world to establish a presence in the Stem Cell Commercialization Center. The center, which will be housed in TechTown's Tech One building on Burroughs Street just north of Wayne State University, is an outgrowth of the passage of Proposal 2 by Michigan voters last November 2008. The proposal allows embryonic stem cell research in the state.
