Stem cell research promises to provide new therapies, preventive measures and even cures for some major human diseases and disorders. But some policymakers, like many Americans, have deep misgivings about the use of human embryonic tissue for this purpose. A panel talks about the therapeutic potential of stem cells, the ethical issues raised by the work, and federal funding for the research.
