Read All About It! At Least Some Of It

The agenda for the Oct. 10 and 11 meetings of the Oversight Committee for the California stem cell agency is now available on CIRM's web site with the draft of the strategic plan expected on Wednesday.

As usual, the sessions are fully packed. Much of the background material is not yet available, but the agency seems to be doing a better job of posting the material earlier.

We make that comment after being obliquely chastized on Monday by one CIRM staffer for failing to note when the agency improves its performance. Point taken.

Scheduled to be posted on the CIRM web site on Wednesday is a rather hefty document – the draft of the strategic plan for the agency. We are told it is in the range of 90 to 100 pages, so plan on curling up in the front of the fire for a good read.

If you want to influence CIRM's spending plans, now is the time to weigh in. The plan comes up for discussion at the meetings next week. It is scheduled to be approved at the Oversight Committee in December.
