CIRM Lab Grant Programs Coming Up in April

The agenda for the April 10 meeting of the Oversight Committee of the California stem cell agency is now available on the institute's web site, well ahead of the actual date of the meeting.

It is still quite shy of background material but that is likely to fill in as the date of the meeting at the Sacramento Convention Center approaches.

Topics to be considered include SB771 (see item below), an update on the search for a person to replace CIRM President Zach Hall, who is leaving in three months, and discussion of procedures for considering the upcoming round of laboratory grants. A goodly number of the members of the Oversight Committee represent institutions that are likely to be applying for the grants.

Also on the agenda is a "presentation of survey description and concept plan for large facilities," meaning grants for buildings and laboratories. CIRM has about $300 million allotted for various building projects.
