    Looks like it's all Rutgers now and no longer UMDNJ


    Codey revives effort for stem cell research facility


    By JEFFREY GOLD
    The Associated Press

    TRENTON, N.J. - Just weeks after watching his effort to create a stem cell research facility expire amid inaction by the state Assembly, state Senate President Richard J. Codey on Monday introduced a new bill for the project that appears to have support from the new Assembly speaker, as well as the new governor.
    The new bill would again create a facility in New Brunswick, at a cost of $150 million, and, in a new twist, would fund a $50 million research center in Camden.

    BigBob, thanks for posting the story. Where did you get the information that it is "all Rutgers now and no longer UMDNJ"? The article mentions Rutgers only in relationship to the proposed Camden facility and says:
    The New Brunswick-based Stem Cell Institute of New Jersey would be affiliated with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Codey spokeswoman Jennifer Sciortino said.

    BigBob, actually both Rutgers and UMDNJ are in all three locations. It is a wierd situation and very confusing. Wise.

    Now, I am really confused. Originally, I thought Ira Black was going to run the UMDNJ stem cell unit and I believe you were going to run the Rutgers one. I even remember you talking about security for the building. But, it seemed that because Ira had unfortuantely left us, I thought they might have moved his operation to Camden and you would still be heading the one in New Brunswick. This is news to me that you won't be involved in the stem cell project. Why? Would it limit funding for non-controversial research if you were involved in the NJ stem cell research project?

    BigBob,

    You are confusing me.

    Unfortunately, Ira Black died several weeks ago. His group is still working on stem cell research.

    I continue to be involved and fight for the stem cell institute. Yes, I was part of the group that advised the architects concerning the building. I head the search committee that is looking for the new director of the Stem Cell Institute.

    There is one Stem Cell Institute of New Jersey and it is in New Brunswick. The building in Camden is not another stem cell institute.

    I don't understand your question about non-controversial stem cell research.

    Wise.
