Summary

BONN-- Germany's main research funding agency issued new guidelines last week paving the way for researchers to import human embryonic stem cells from other countries. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft also recommended that Parliament pass a law, if needed, that would allow German researchers to derive their own stem cell lines from surplus embryos from in vitro fertilization clinics.
