Abstract

Three types of stem cells, embryonic, adult, and induced pluripotent stem cells, are currently studied by scientists. Barack Obama's presidency has opened the door for stem cell research by revoking statements and orders made during the former President Bush's administration. This provisional period will allow the National Institute of Health to rewrite policies governing how federal funds are distributed for stem cell research. These new regulations will grant more freedom to researchers wishing to use stem cells in their research and challenge them to determine the most appropriate stem cell treatment for a given disorder.
