Applying for funding using stem cells? Think again.
On August 23rd a preliminary injunction was issued that has effectively put a stop to all new funding for stem cell related NIH research. If you were planning to submit a proposal that includes stem cell research, you should not submit it at this time, as your proposal can not be reviewed or funded. You are better off waiting until the Spring deadlines, after a decision will likely have been made. To read the NIH announcement of this issue and its related procedures visit this link. According to the announcement, it appears that currently funded projects can continue to spend money and work with stem cell data.
