My posts so far on the injunction stopping federal support for embryonic stem cell research have focused on this country. However, researchers in other countries may well be affected by the injunction. The Australian writes about all the possible impacts in that country, were several researchers are teamed up with American colleagues to do stem cell research. Apparently the current unresolved election in Australia raises the possibility that other stem cell research efforts, including relevant Australian legislation, could be on the table. The country is closing its own stem cell research centre, and appears to run the risk of losing its capacity in this field.
Of course, should companies and/or researchers not depend on federal funding for their stem cell work, then the injunction is unlikely to affect them.
