Bush links to biotechnology

Edinburgh is a leading centre of stem-cell research.

Bush blocks wider stem-cell research


Jeb Bush in call for Scots partnership

US PRESIDENT George Bush's younger brother today called for more co-operation between Scotland and the US in a vital science industry. Florida governor Jeb Bush is attending a conference in Edinburgh on life sciences. The sector includes biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and biomedical technologies. Governor Bush said: "The world is moving at warp speed and communicating is so easy there really is no excuse not to collaborate." The conference is taking place just after President Bush used his veto to block a controversial Bill which would have lifted a ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. Supporters of the research say it could offer hope to people who suffer from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Publication date 20/07/06
