- Time "Stem Cells: The Hope and the Hype" 7/30/06 - "Scientists who are having surprising success with adult stem cells find their progress being used by activists to argue that embryo research is not just immoral but also unnecessary. But to those in the field, the only answer is to press ahead on all fronts. 'There are camps for adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells,' says Douglas Melton, a co-director of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. 'But these camps only exist in the political arena. There is no disagreement among scientists over the need to aggressively pursue both in order to solve important medical problems.'"
