The Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission named patient advocate Margaret Conn Himelfarb its new chairwoman Friday.
Himelfarb, appointed to the commission in 2008 by Gov. Martin O’Malley, has pushed for research on juvenile diabetes since her son was diagnosed with the disease in 1981. She is credited with organizing the grassroots campaign supporting legislation to fund stem cell research in Maryland.
