In 2006, we ran the stem cell campaign here in the state of Missouri to make sure stem cell research stayed legal. So now all medical research that’s legal on the federal level is legal in our state – so we can bring in the best and the brightest researchers at our research institutions, who are working hard to find cures and therapies for devastating diseases. Our mission is to promote and protect medical research in Missouri.
