MOBIO's New Website and Membership Database Management System Ready for Visitors!!


MOBIO recently launched a brand new website and membership database management system that will give members an enhanced experience and improved ease in navigation. We took the much appreciated feedback and information gathered during our Strategic Planning Session in October of 2011 and have begun incorporating different aspects for a better user experience. Upon visiting the site you will notice certain areas of the website are designed so only member companies and their employees will have access to that information. If for some reason your company is a member but you are unable to log-in, please contact me and I will enter your name into the database for access.


Here is a link to the website, from here you can navigate the website without logging in or simply hit log-in at the top of the page and directions for first time log-in will appear.

Court Rules Controversial Stem Cell Research is Legal





The three-judge panel says the government has correctly interpreted a law that bans the use of federal funds to destroy human embryos for research. The ruling is unlikely to put the issue to rest and one of the judges pleaded for Congress to make clear what the government should and should not be able to do.

The hard-to-understand case pits science against mostly religious arguments against using embryos in medical research. It's even more confusing because there are so many differenlt types of cells called stem cells.

"NIH will continue to move forward, conducting and funding research in this very promising area of science. The ruling affirms our commitment to the patients afflicted by diseases that may one day be treatable using the results of this research," NIH director Dr. Francis Collins said in a statement.
