Stem cell injunction: a lawyer’s eye view

by Nancy Fliesler on September 23, 2010

Judge Lamberth’s court injunction on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research was temporarily lifted September 9, but much remains in question. In today’s edition of Nature (September 23rd), a legal panel examines the case. Panelist Patrick Taylor, former Chief Counsel for Research Affairs at Children’s, weighs in on the ambiguities of the Dickey-Wicker amendment, what kind of legislative action is needed, and the prospects for NIH funding of research on the embryonic stem cell lines created under Obama, the so-called Bush Lines, and new lines waiting to be created.

    I am a bioethicist based in San Diego. This afternoon I gave a presentation on stem cell research and related current events (including a discussion of Judge Lamberth’s ruling) to the National University Journal Club. Very well received with many questions from the audience.

    The talk was Part 2 of my ongoing talks on ESC research and human cloning.

    an administration official says government lawyers will also argue that the injunction imposed by the judge will seriously jeopardize ongoing stem-cell research. Justice Department lawyers are now gathering
