This Tuesday, Governor Jim Doyle and Bernard Siegel of the Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) co-announced Madison as the host of the 2008 World Stem Cell Summit.

“Madison is a logical place to hold the World Stem Cell Summit. Wisconsin is the cradle of human embryonic stem cell research, it will soon be the home to the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, it is a launching pad for stem-cell companies and it has the right public and private infrastructure for the industry to prosper,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council. “We look forward to being a part of the team that will make this summit the best ever.”
