even the president's own scientists have said that his policy is not working. dr. elias zerhouni, director of the national institutes of health, [color=#48537a]told
a senate subcommittee that "it is clear today that american science will be better-served, and the nation will be better-served, if we let our scientists have access to more stem cell lines" and that the current policy forces his agency "to fight with one hand tied behind our back."
a few weeks earlier, dr. story landis, interim director of the nih stem cell task force, [color=#48537a]said
that updating the current policy to allow funding for new stem cell lines "would be incredibly important." as she explained, "science works best when scientists can pursue all avenues of research. if the cure for parkinson's disease or juvenile diabetes lay behind one of four doors, wouldn't you want
the option to open all four doors at once instead of one door?"
