Daley named president of stem cell group
Dr. George Q. Daley, associate director of the stem cell program at Children's Hospital Boston, has been named president of the International Institute for Stem Cell Research, the hospital said today.
An associate professor at Harvard Medical School, he is also affiliated with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital.
The nonprofit stem cell organization, which is meeting in Australia this week, was formed in 2002 to foster the exchange of information on stem cell research. In February the group established ethical guidelines for stem cell research.
"I hope to make these guidelines more relevant to practitioners and stem cell oversight committees worldwide," Daley said in a statement. "As countries debate what sorts of regulations to put in place, we want to take a leadership role, acknowledging the social context of the work while removing unnecessary barriers to scientific progress."
