Government to lift law on cross-species, human/animal – ‘Chimera’ research

The National Institutes of Health is planning to lift a law on funding for research studying the effects of injecting animal embryos with human stem cells.

The agency last year issued a moratorium for such funding while it studied the issue further. But NPR is reporting the NIH plans to lift that reprieve and allow scientists to conduct so-called “Chimera” experiments under strict and closely monitored parameters.
