Tracking the Rise of State-Sponsored Stem Cell Research

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

State funding for stem cell research has emerged as novel state policy tool in the last few years with six states – California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey and New York – providing research grants to individual scientists. The policies have been motivated by two important goals: (1) Advancing scientific knowledge by supporting cutting-edge human embryonic stem cell research not eligible for federal funding, and (2) fostering economic development by recruiting and retaining scientists and strengthening the scientific workforce in these states. As a first step towards assessing the effectiveness of these policies, we have built a database of all stem cell grants awarded by these six states through the end of 2008. We find that states awarded nearly 500 grants totaling approximately $750 million in funding from 2005 though 2008. California has awarded by far the most funding ($637 million), followed by Maryland ($38 million) and Connecticut ($30 million). These data permit an assessment of the extent to which each state focused its research funding on research ineligible for federal funding and, thus, a partial assessment of how well these state programs have met their goal of circumventing the federal funding restrictions. In all, analysis of this novel dataset provides unique insight into the scale, scope and prioritization of the six individual state programs.
