Stem-cell group adds longtime Rep. DeLauro aide

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Jan. 18, 2018

Rep. Rose DeLauro's (D-Conn.) legislative director has taking his former boss's fight for stem-cell research off the Hill.

Eric Anthony began as policy director to the International Society for Stem Cell Research earlier this month. He spent a couple of years with former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) before moving to DeLauro's office in 2011.

DeLauro, a cancer survivor, is one of Congress's biggest advocates for stem-cell and other biomedical research. The ISSCR promotes stem-cell-related research and education but has never disclosed lobbying at the federal level.
