The article emphasizes the initiative of Connecticut to fund stem cell research. It states the passage of the Connecticut General Assembly and the ratification of the Public Act 05-149, an act that allows stem cell research and bans human cloning, by Governor M. Jodi Rell in 2005 in order to provide public funds for embryonic and human adult stem cell research. It notes that the state funding for such studies has moved toward creating an infrastructure of the Yale Stem Cell Center in New Haven and the Stem Cell Institute in Farmington.
