Recommend blogs or websites on stem cell research and ethics

Are there any blogs/regularly updated web sites out there focusing on stem cells? I want to follow not only all the latest research (both successes and failures), but also ethics and related public policy so I'll know when to write my Congressperson.

Tried Googling and came up with a few blogs that cover them occasionally, but not exhaustively.

The passing of Chris Reeve will probably cause quite a bit of stem cell noise around the web, maybe some of those entries will link to good sources?

Turned this up from a search at

Alzheimers and Stem Cell Resource Center

Looks like a spam/fake biz site, falconred.

It's not solely about stem cell research, but Betterhumans is good for biotech stories in general.

Soliloquy -- I doubt this directly addresses what you're looking for, but if you get to the point where you want to support the research, a great advocacy site is The Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research. You'll find lots of information there, as well as suggestions on what to say to your congressperson. They even email alerts when some key issue is coming up so you can contact your representative at just the right time.

Response by poster: You know, when I posted that last night, I had no idea the word of Christopher Reeve's death would come this morning. I don't know when or if stem cells will be able to cure paralysis and the host of diseases that continue to plague humankind, but it seems clear to me that we need to try.

Thanks for the links everybody; I'm off to my friendly neighborhood domain registrar.
