A Retrospective on Prop. 71 in Houston

If you are looking for a hot time this weekend – stem cell wise – check out Houston.

The Stem Cell Policy and Advocacy Summit gets underway there beginning tomorrow. The Genetics Policy Institute, which is sponsoring the conference, says, "This is a critical time for the advocacy community to develop winning strategies to overcome Draconian legislation and secure adequate funding for research."

South Korea's Woo Suk Hwang will appear. Also scheduled is a look at California post-Prop. 71, including a talk by Jim Battey of the NIH. The political consultant behind the Prop. 71 campaign, Paul Mandabach, and others involved in the campaign will be appearing as well.
You can read more about the conference here.
