Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation salutes passage of Senate stem cell bill

April 11, 2007, Washington, DC -- The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the worlds largest charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research, praised todays historic vote in the U.S. Senate to expand federal funding for embryonic stem cell research with the passage of S. 5, the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007.

"The Senate passage of this bill marks another important step in the road to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and related complications," said Larry Soler, Vice President of Government Relations for JDRF. "We need to accelerate the development of a cure for diabetes, and this legislation will ensure that scientists will be able to pursue the potential benefits of stem cell research. I hope that the President listens to the voices of the tens of millions of Americans with diabetes and other diseases who are calling for action, and signs this bill into law."

"Id like to thank the lead authors of the bill: Senators Reid, Harkin, Specter, Kennedy, Hatch, Feinstein, and Smith," added Mr. Soler. "Id also like to thank the original authors of the House bill, Representatives Diana DeGette and Michael Castle, for their tireless work in promoting stem cell research. Finally, and equally importantly, Id like to salute the tireless efforts of our thousands of grassroots volunteers from around the country who met with their elected officials and stayed in close contact with them to ensure the positive conclusion of todays historic vote. Their enthusiasm and commitment to work with legislators to speed the discovery of cures for themselves and their loved ones is both admirable and heartening as we explore a wide range of scientific opportunities in our search for a cure."
