PERKINS, HASSELL-THOMPSON, STAVISKY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Health AN ACT creating the New York Stem Cell Research Institute THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "New York Stem Cell Research Institute act". S 2. Legislative intent. Millions of children and adults suffer from devastating diseases or injuries that are currently incurable, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord inju- ries, blindness, Lou Gehrig's disease, HIV/AIDS, mental health disor- ders, multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease, and more than seventy other diseases and injuries. Recently, medical science has discovered a new way to attack chronic diseases and injuries. The cure and treatment of these diseases can potentially be accomplished through the use of new regenerative medical therapies including a special type of human cells, called stem cells. These life-saving medical breakthroughs can only happen if adequate funding is made available to advance stem cell research, develop thera- pies, and conduct clinical trials. Unfortunately, the federal government is not providing the adequate funding necessary for the urgent research and facilities needed to develop stem cell therapies to treat and cure diseases and serious inju- ries. This critical funding gap currently prevents the rapid advancement of research that could benefit millions of New Yorkers. S 3. New York Stem Cell Research Institute. a. There is hereby created an institute to be known as the New York Stem Cell Research Institute, which shall have the following purposes: EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
