Newsom to Nominate Thomas for Chair of Stem Cell Agency

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom plans to nominate Southern California investor Jonathan Thomas for chair of the California stem cell agency, according to the San Francisco Business Times.

Reporter Ron Leuty cited an anonymous source in reporting the move today in his story on the nomination of Thomas by Gov. Jerry Brown and state Treasurer Bill Lockyer. State Controller John Chiang is yet to make his nomination.

In addition to Leuty, the Los Angeles Times and The Sacramento Bee today carried stories on their web sites about the nomination. The San Francisco and Los Angeles papers both cited coverage of the matter by the California Stem Cell Report.

Here are links to the stories in the Los Angeles paper (written by Eryn Brown) and The Bee(by Paresh Dave).
