New stem cell research rules said to imperil scientists - The Boston Globe
- Maybe another complication for Harvard's Stem Cell ambitions in Allston? -
State regulators adopted rules for stem cell research yesterday that Harvard University and most of Boston's major hospitals and research centers opposed, fearing they could subject scientists to criminal penalties for certain research activities.
``We are deeply disappointed by the council's action," B.D. Colen, a Harvard University spokesman, said last night. ``We believe that it has inappropriately criminalized an action neither specified nor criminalized by the Legislature."
