ESSCB's Annual Report: New York's stem cell research program off to a strong start

The 2007-2008 Annual Report of the Empire State Stem Cell Board is now
available online (1). The report covers the Board's activities during its first year of operation
and includes abstracts of initial contracts awarded.
NYS DOH Commissioner Richard F. Daines, M.D. writes in his message:

With the support of Gov. David A. Paterson and the State Legislature, much progress has been made in getting New York's stem cell research program off to a strong start.... Lieutenant Gov. Mr. Paterson was instrumental in passing legislation that created the Empire State Stem Cell Fund and Board...in addition I want to acknowledge that this initiative could not have occurred without the support of the medical , scientific, voluntary health and patient advocacy communities who urged the state to embrace this promising field of science...We want New York's stem cell research to be world-class, not only in the sense that it leads to breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of diseases. We also want the research to be world-class in its adherence to the most widely accepted and reviewed ethical, medical and scientific standards....

Upcoming Meetings are scheduled for:
Funding Committee Meeting Thursday, December 18, 2008
Ethics Committee Meeting Monday, January 26, 2009
