Double enormous: Harvard celebrates new stem cell rule

 From today’s Globe:

 “This will be an enormous relief, because of the enormous constraints under which we’ve operated,” said Douglas Melton, co-director of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, one of the places where research has continued because of collaboration between scientists, hospitals, and donors. “What I very much hope is that researchers who have been unable to study these cells will now be excited by the fact they are accessible and can be used in labs all over the US.” 

Stories by Gareth Cook of The Boston Globe, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer “for explaining, with clarity and humanity, the complex scientific and ethical dimensions of stem cell research.”
