Why did you sign the Stem Cell Charter?

Posted by

Over 4,000 people have signed the Stem Cell Charter since its release last September. This month, we’ll be profiling Charter Community Members, people who signed the Charter and are passionately working towards advancing stem cell science. They’ll tell us why they signed the Charter, why they think supporting stem cell science is important and what they’re doing to champion the cause.

But before we get to that, let’s take a look at why people signed the Charter to begin with. Everyone who signed was asked why they were signing: for themselves or someone they care about; the scientists so they can continue their work; the responsible advancement of stem cell science; the benefit of future generations; or all humanity. Which reason did you choose? And which reasons did others choose? Take a look below to see the breakdown.

Almost half of us signed for All Humanity. This encompasses a great variety of reasons, and this month is the perfect time to share your personal reasons for supporting stem cell science. Send us your story by email, or by posting it on facebook, twitter, or in the comments section of this post.
