ABSTRACT
The article reports on the order of U.S. President Barack Obama to heads of federal agencies to adopt final human embryonic stem cell (hESC) funding guidelines issued by the National Institutes of Health to the fullest extent practiceable in light of legal authorities and obligations. It notes that the guidelines could increase the number of cell lines from 21 to more than 700. An executive order was signed by President Obama on March 9, 2009 revoking an order signed by former president George W. Bush that limited federal funding of research on hESCs.
