The federal government will pay only for research with human embryonic stem cells that were created before Aug. 9, 2001. It will not pay for the creation of any new human embryonic stem cell lines. Scientists are free to use private funds, but that has not been easy, Dr. Daley said. "It's incredibly difficult to raise private money to sustain a reasonable research program," he explained. "The federal government funds 95 percent of what we do. So if the federal government will not fund embryonic stem cell research, we have to use ingenuity."
