    Thomas Okarma, the chief executive of Geron Corp. of Menlo Park, said the company hopes to begin the first clinical trial of embryonic stem cells by next year. The aim is to regenerate injured spinal nerves. For Okarma, the federal policy change signaled by Obama will be perfectly timed.

    "You can bet I'll be banging on the NIH's door for funding for our spinal cord injury trial," he said.

    Yes that will be good to see Geron get going again on the ESC clinical trial after their G.W Bush FDA related unplanned vacation holiday.
