From a Chris Bell press release:
Texas Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Chris Bell will participate in a roundtable discussion during the second annual national stem cell policy and advocacy summit at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California Sunday, June 11. The summit, hosted by the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics and the Genetics Policy Institute (GPI), will bring together the nation’s top scientists, policy makers, and patient advocates to discuss the status of stem cell research in the United States and policy to ensure this lifesaving research.
“Very few candidates for public office are as knowledgeable and passionate about stem cell research as Chris Bell,” said Bernard Siegel, Executive Director of GPI and a leading legal expert in regenerative medicine. “If Texas is to remain a leader in basic life sciences research and biotechnology, it must have leaders who understand the profound impact of stem cell research on the future of medicine in the 21st Century. Chris Bell is resolutely on the side of patients and cures. We are very proud to have him as a speaker at the summit.”
