California Governor Views California’s Experience with Stem Cell Research as Providing a Strong Example for Other States to Follow

Written by on Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

Following up on our posting yesterday regarding the Boston Globe’s critique of stem cell research in California, Governor Schwarzenegger made some remarks yesterday on California’s experiences with stem cell research in the context of a short speech on the state of the California biotech industry generally, and he presented a very different perspective on the issue.     Unlike the Boston Globe which viewed California’s experiences as providing a "lesson for Massachusetts," Governor Schwarzenegger applauded California for providing a shining example for the rest of the country to follow and for investing in the state’s future.  Clearly, the Governor has a very different view of the state’s stem cell research program, and perceives it already as being a success.  While there is no doubt that as the Governor, he may at times view the program through rose-colored glasses, as a member of the biotech community, I think many of us in the industry and in the state generally share that same vision and perspective on our state’s stem cell accomplishments.
