"California's stem cell agency was created in 2004 when 59% of California voters approved Proposition 71: the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative. That initiative created the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to fund stem cell research in the state.
Since then, the agency has funded research and new facilities and has trained high school, undergraduate and graduate students for careers in stem cell science.
Forecasts estimate we will have generated $286M in tax revenues by 2014."
"The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services , is the nation’s medical research agency—making important discoveries that improve health and save lives.
NIH is the largest source of funding for medical research in the world, creating hundreds of thousands of high-quality jobs by funding thousands of scientists in universities and research institutions in every state across America and around the globe.....
Due in large measure to NIH research, a baby born in the United States today can expect to live to nearly age 79 — about three decades longer than one born in 1900. Not only are we living longer, but our quality of life is improving. Over the last quarter century, the proportion of older people with chronic disabilities has dropped by nearly one-third."
