MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Three companies founded to bring to market groundbreaking University of Wisconsin-Madison stem cell research are merging into one.

Company officials say the new company will carry CDI's name and employs about 50 workers.
They say the merger positions the company to become a leader in stem cell research by having putting the companies' intellectual property and research and production capabilities under one management team.
