CIRM Grant Appeal Rules to Receive More Scrutiny

Directors of the California stem cell agency plan to continue their review of key portions of the grant approval process, including the appeals that have been something of a bugaboo for both applicants and directors.

Don Gibbons, chief communications officer for CIRM, said in an email that the directors' Science Subcommittee on Tuesday concluded that “they need to devote a large chunk of a future committee meeting to just this issue.”

No further details were immediately known although a transcript of the meeting should be available in about 10 days. We will carry a fresh article on the subject at that point.

This is a matter that all California stem cell scientists should pay special attention to. It could have a significant impact on their livelihood.

For more details on the scope of the directors' concern, see this rundown on related documents. Sphere: Related Content
