Stephen W. Bernstein and Jennifer S. Geetter were quoted in the February 1 issue of Mass High Tech in an article regarding the state of Massachusetts funding stem cell research. "States see it as a hot new thing, and that's debatable. But in Massachusetts we have all the raw expertise and can use legislation to springboard what's already here," Mr. Bernstein said. "State programs can clarify legal aspects. It's an opportunity for states to clear up any state regulations which may impede stem cell research. State privacy laws are a patchwork, and you can get tangled in ways the legislation didn't intend," Ms. Geetter said.
