Is Stem Cell Research Illegal in The United States?: Stem cell research is legal in the United States, however, there are restrictions on its funding and use. Currently, the only stem cells now used to treat disease are from blood cell-forming adult stem cells found in bone marrow. Stem cells are cells that are capable of becoming new stem cells (self-renewal) or specialized cells that perform specific functions (differentiation).
