NY Times, San Diego UT and More on Golden State's Stem Cell Labs

The New York Times and some California media carried stories this afternoon on the landmark, $1.1 billion lab construction program triggered by the California stem cell agency. More is expected on Thursday.

Andy Pollack of the New York Times wrote:
"California has awarded $271 million in grants to build 12 new stem cell research centers in the state, even as one of the political rationales for the building program might soon disappear."
Pollack reported that California stem cell Chairman Robert Klein and others say, however, that "even if the restrictions were lifted, new laboratory space would be needed to expand research and to recruit scientists, who are already flocking to California because of the availability of research financing."

Terri Somers of the San Diego Union-Tribune wrote an online piece this afternoon that will probably be updated in the print version Thursday morning.

KNBC TV (channel 4) and three other Los Angeles TV stations (7, 11 and 18) covered the news conference and presumably will have coverage this evening. Here is a link to the KNBC online version.

The San Francisco Chronicle and San Jose Mercury News this afternoon used The Associated Press story. They may staff written stories tomorrow.

The Sacramento Bee carried a staff-written online piece and is also likely to have more later.

Ron Leuty
of the San Francisco Business Journal weighed in with a piece that was circulated nationally via the national news network linking business journals. Sphere: Related Content
