Research using human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) was debated for 4 years in the Brazilian Supreme Court before being legally approved in 2008. Before that, only research with adult stem cells was supported by federal funding. Even with the ban on hESC research until 2008 the country made significant advances in stem cell research in the last decade [1] . Right after legislation permitted, the first Brazilian hESC line was derived, still in 2008 [2] . Achievements in the field were supported by policies directed to provide federal funding for stem cell research by the Ministry of Health. Investments since 2005 have mounted to over US$50 million, financing 110 projects, ranging from basic to clinical research.
