Stem cell research is set to get a cash injection from the government, underpinning the country's leading position in the controversial field, the head of the Stem Cell Foundation said on Thursday. "The Chancellor will make an announcement tomorrow on stem cell funding in the UK," David Macauley, the foundation's chief executive, told a biotechnology conference. A spokesman for Chancellor Gordon Brown declined to comment.
