ABSTRACT
The article profiles Doug Melton, co-director of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. Melton's work on embryonic-stem-cell research is motivated by how it could benefit his son, who suffers from diabetes. After U.S. President George W. Bush cut federal funding for stem-cell research, Melton raised money through private donations to create 100 stem-cell lines to distribute to researchers.
