German embryonic stem cell debate may be reignited by FDP

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The appointment of Philipp Rößler to the post of federal health minister in Germany may just be the impetus that is needed to re-open the country’s controversial stem cell law debate. Dr Rößler, something of a surprise selection by the German liberal party (FDP) for the position, may come under pressure from his own party to lift restrictions on scientists in the field of embryonic stem cell research.
