Abstract In this article, we compare two different approaches to establishing stem cell policy: a defined policy (the UK) and a changing policy (the US). The UK has a clear and precise policy, agreed upon and supported by lawmakers, scientists and the public. By contrast, US federal policy is continuously being updated based on balancing political ideologies and advances in science, and it only regulates federal funding. By investigating these contrasting policy approaches, we hope to demonstrate the impact of policy on stem cell research and public opinion.
