The article reports on the decision of U.S. President Barack Obama to lift George W. Bush's restrictions on the federal funding of research on human embryonic stem cells (ESCs). The move comes as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) prepares for an unprecedented windfall of $10.4 billion as part of the Obama administration's economic stimulus package. Obama's executive order, signed on March 9, 2009, gives the NIH 120 days to draw up new guidelines for research on human ESCs.
