Minimal News Coverage on CIRM Faculty Grants

News coverage of this week's $59 million in grants from the California stem cell agency was light today.

Most of the stories were heavily focused on the local impact of the grants. All appeared to have been written from the CIRM news release as opposed to actual coverage of the directors meeting.

Here is a listing of the stories we turned up.

Sacramento Bee

San Diego Union-Tribune
, story by Terri Somers

San Francisco Chronicle
, story by David Perlman

San Jose Business Journal

The Associated Press

Here is a listing of the news releases from recipient institutions.


UC Irvine

University of California, statewide

UC San Diego

UC San Francisco

UCLA put out a news release that has not surfaced on its stem cell web site. You may be able to find it in the next day or two by going to the UCLA stem cell home home page.
