Lawrence Goldstein Recipient of 2009 ASCB Public Service Award

ASCB is honoring LG for his “dedication in advocating for biomedical research funding and research policy issues around the country. During the past decade, Goldstein has spent numerous hours explaining why government funding of stem cell research is important, and sharing his expertise with members of Congress and the media to help them understand the complicated science behind stem cell legislation.”

Locally, LG has served as a national leader in stem cell research and policy, including serving as co-chair of the scientific advisory committee for the campaign to pass California's Proposition 71, a voter-endorsed measure to provide $3 billion in stem cell research funding in California. LG has also appeared on numerous occasions before the California legislature and the U.S. Congress and Senate to testify in support of stem cell research and biomedical research funding. Source
