CIRM on WARF

The California stem cell agency, until now, has been nearly deathly silent on the WARF patent flap.

But the agency released the following statement in the wake of WARF's change of heart.
"The announcement today by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) appears to be a major step forward in facilitating the sharing and accessibility of materials that will move stem cell research closer to therapies and cures. We are interested to hear more details and to review the new licensing policies."

  1. David,

    The ICOC should consider and pass a resolution at its next meeting supporting the WARF patent re-examination requests filed with the PTO by the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights and the Public Patent Foundation.
