01 August 2011 Modern Healthcare News

Foley Partner Antoinette Konski was quoted in an article that appeared in Modern Healthcare on August 1, 2011 titled "Divisiveness Brings Uncertainty, Stem-cell Researchers Look Elsewhere for Funding." Konski discusses a federal judge’s dismissal of a lawsuit challenging U.S. funding for human embryonic stem-cell studies. She states that the dismissal leaves no legal questions unturned, and even addresses whether the 1996 Dickey-Wicker Amendment prohibits the derivation of new cell lines.
