Home > Initiatives > Stem Cell Action Coalition
The Stem Cell Action Coalition serves as an engine uniting the pro-cures community. We demand that both our elected and appointed officials in all branches and levels of government, federal and state, establish stem cell & regenerative medicine research as a national public health priority. So focused, these officials need to enact and uphold laws that protect funding for scientifically meritorious and ethically responsible research that will foster the emergence of cures sooner, rather than later.
Regenerative medicine & stem cell research are at the forefront of medical discovery. This research is hailed as the "gold standard" and future of medicine. The impact of this work will have a global effect, impacting millions of lives, as research could provide tools for drug discovery and development of the therapies to cure a host of disabling and often deadly medical conditions, which current and continuing needs are unmet. A world where multiple sclerosis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, spinal cord injury, stroke, blindness, AIDS, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, birth defects and so many more diseases would be fought against...and won.
It is up to the Stem Cell Action Coalition to educate and increase the public awareness that this research is not that of science fiction but rather of science fact.
