CIRM Directors Approve $27 Million Training Effort at State and Community Colleges
Directors of the California stem cell agency this afternoon approved a $27 million extension of a training program at California state and community colleges. CIRM staff said the program supports 160 trainees a year at 16 institutions. The extension will cover a three year period. The vote was 7-0.. Nineteen of the 29 CIRM directors were not able to vote or participate in discussion of the proposal because of conflicts of interest.
