More than a year has passed since Californians voted to authorize $3 billion for stem cell research, which promises treatments for a host of diseases from Alzheimer’s to cancer to AIDS. Proposition 71’s proponents predicted financial windfalls for California and beyond. But who will receive these promised therapies and how? Who will regulate the marketplace for human tissue? The nation’s leading experts will explore the ethical and legal obligations of society’s increasing power to manipulate these early cells from which all life emerges.
