Grants to Nebraska researchers and research institutions for stem cell research projects. Research projects conducted under this program must not use stem cells acquired from human embryos. Funding is intended for equipment, consultant costs, eligible salary costs, and travel.
In the 2008 legislative session, the Stem Cell Research Act (Neb. Rev. Stat. §§ 71-8801 et seq., “The Act”) was passed. The Act established the Stem Cell Research Advisory Committee (“The Committee”). The Committee is responsible for developing a grant process and making grants to Nebraska institutions or researchers to conduct stem cell research that does not use human embryonic stem cells.
For purposes of the Act, human embryo means the developing human organism from the time of fertilization until the end of the eighth week of gestation and includes an embryo or developing human organism created by somatic cell nuclear transfer; somatic cell nuclear transfer means a technique in which the nucleus of an oocyte is replaced with the nucleus of a somatic cell.
