The Maryland Stem Cell Research Act of 2006 was established by the Governor and the Maryland General Assembly during the 2006 legislative session and created the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund. This fund is continued through an appropriation in the Governor's annual budget.
The purpose of the Fund is to promote state-funded stem cell research and cures through grants and loans to public and private entities in the State.
To date, over $130 million and 375 research grants have been committed and for this year (FY2017) the programs has a budget of $9 million.
