I just finished reading the September 2006 Nebraska Right to Life Newsletter dedicated to Cloning and Embryonic Stem-Cell Update.
This spring marks the conclusion of the third Legislative Session that stem cell research hasn’t been prohibited or criminalized in the State of Nebraska.
To step up efforts in the public advocacy arena, Nebraskans for Research has organized a new organization called Research Nebraska!
Dr. Catherine Verfaillie, an internationally renowned adult stem cell researcher, was in Nebraska, March 7-8, 2005 to brief Nebraska State Senators.
Over the past year, NFR has organized forums in Lincoln, Hastings and Scottsbluff to educate Nebraskans on our organization and the importance of medical research to all of us.
Nebraskans for Research recently honored Michael Sorrell, M.D., professor and section chief of gastroenterology and hepatology at UNMC.
On January 22nd, the Human Cloning Prohibition Act was taken off the Legislature’s Agenda after its sponsor, Senator Adrian Smith, failed to get enough votes to end debate.
On Monday, April 8, Nebraskans For Research saluted Charles W. “Chuck” Durham, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Durham Resources.
