Stem Cell Research

I support stem cell research and believe we must embrace opportunities for breakthroughs in the field of medicine. I have met with many doctors and scientists who agree that stem cell research represents an important march toward the cure of our most terrible diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, among others.

I agreed with President Obama’s decision to lift the previous restrictions on embryonic stem cell research and expand the federal funds available to researchers. As a Congressman, I will support this important research and its promise to help us live longer and healthier lives.
