Dr. Battey, who is also vice-chair of the NIH Stem Cell Task Force, received the award on October 14 when he delivered a lecture to Monell’s scientists on “NIH Guidelines for Human Stem Cell Research.” The lecture focused on the Presidential Executive Order to remove barriers to responsible research involving human stem cells.
