A senior aide to President Elect Obama says the transition team is studying President Bush's executive orders to decide which should be kept, amended or repealed.

The Senate voted on July 19th to remove restrictions on embryonic stem cell research only to have President Bush veto it the next day.

As a senator Mr Obama has supported stem cell research to find cures for diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, ALS, MS, Diabetis since 2004. He wants to be ready to hit the ground running on Jan 20th, 200 when he takes office. There's much the new President can do with his executive powers.

It is going to be vital to see what federal funding for Parkinson's will be. We need to make up for 8 years of an administration that did not grasp the importance of scientific research in terms of time, lives and health care dollars.
