UW-Madison Stem Cell Experts Visit White House
WASHINGTON - University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health scientists and ethicists were invited to the White House's East Room on March 9, 2009, to watch President Barack Obama sign a new order that should increase federal dollars for embryonic stem cell research and broaden the scope of allowable research in federally funded laboratories.
The order promised that no scientific data will be "distorted or concealed to serve a political agenda."
