CIRM Executive Session on StemCells, Inc., Appeal

The governing board of the California stem cell agency is meeting in executive session to consider proprietary information on an appeal by StemCells, Inc., following a second public pitch by the agency's former chairman, Robert Klein, on behalf of the financially strapped business.

Martin McGlynn, CEO of the publicly traded firm, indicated to the board that it may have to drop its Alzheimer's research program if it does not receive the $20 million from CIRM.

 The board's executive session followed rejection of another Alzheimer's related application, this one from researchers at USC. Sphere: Related Content
