NIH Lets Stem Cell Bank Contract Expire.

Apr 20, 2010

The National Institutes of Health has allowed its contract with the National Stem Cell Bank to expire. The bank, established in 2005, was designed to distribute Bush-approved stem lines to labs.  The lines continue to be available through the Wisconsin International Stem Cell Bank, but a lack of government subsidies has doubled their price.
