The article reports on the $6 billion given by KB Home founder Eli Broad to the University of Southern California to construct a stem-cell building. The move is in defiance to the U.S. ban on federal funding of most stem-cell experiments imposed by President George W. Bush five years ago. Broad says he is saddened by the Bush administration's stem-cell ban, which has constrained funding, forced universities to set up redundant laboratories in other countries.
