CIRM Board Recesses for Confidential Grant Review

Directors of the California stem cell agency have gone into executive session to discuss confidential information related to applications for $167 million grants and loans in the agency's disease team round.

The CIRM board moved into closed door discussions tonight shortly after the CIRM staff presented a brief overview of the round. It is not clear when the board will return to open session.

The agency has called a news conference for 11 a.m. PDT tomorrow to formally announce the awards and publicly identify the winners.
