ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. President Barack Obama has signed an executive order lifting a federal funding restriction on human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research imposed by his predecessor, George W. Bush, in 2001. Obama stressed that promoting science is not just about providing resources, but also letting scientists do their jobs. He also signed a presidential memorandum directing John Holdren, head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, to develop a strategy for restoring scientific integrity to government decision making.
