Stem cell guidlines

Apparently the NAS has now gotten done with its public comment period and has release its stem cell ethics guidlines [in case there's any doubt: I'm in favor of this research and these guidlines].

"The National Academies today recommended guidelines for research involving human embryonic stem cells, and urged all institutions conducting such research to establish oversight committees to ensure that the new guidelines will be followed. The guidelines are intended to enhance the integrity of privately funded human embryonic stem cell research by encouraging responsible practices, said the committee that wrote the report, a joint project between the National Academies' National Research Council and Institute of Medicine."
