City of Hope Scientist Seeks to Reverse Negative Finding on Grant Application

A fourth researcher is seeking to overturn a negative decision on a grant application that comes before the California stem cell agency later today.

The scientist is WenYong Chen of the City of Hope in Duarte in Southern California. Chen's 4-page petition said the reviewers may not have “fully appreciated” certain points of the proposal.

CIRM directors will take up the applications for $80 million in translational research funding at their meeting this afternoon in Los Angeles. Three researchers have already appealed the negative decisions on their proposals. Summaries of the reviewer comments on all the grants can be found here. Sphere: Related Content
