Abstract:     
This Article presents an innovative study of the effect of individual states and private institutions in pushing forward with stem-cell research despite a federal ban on creating new stem-cell lines. This Article posits important implications for the future of stem-cell research in this country. I show that, while state initiatives may be a good way for stem-cell research to progress in light of the current federal policy, this is not the most desired way for research to be conducted. Indeed, state action could result in federal preemption, federal apathy, or federal support. The analysis in this Article establishes that the most effective way to conduct stem-cell research is by the federally funded NIH process.
