Elias Zerhouni, James F. Battey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Human embryonic stem cell research offers the promise to elucidate some of the molecular mechanisms that underlie differentiation into specialized types. This knowledge may someday be used to develop new treatments for cellular degenerative diseases. National Institutes of Health has taken several steps to expedite progress in this new field.
