UCLA's Nelson and Miceli Win $6 Million from California Stem Cell Agency

Directors of the California stem cell agency today approved a $6 million research grant for Stanley F. Nelson and M. Carrie Miceli  of UCLA, who appealed a negative decision  by grant reviewers on its earlier $20 million request.

Following a re-review of the proposal, a special CIRM panel recommended the lower amount and conversion of the proposal to an early translational grant instead of a disease team. The UCLA team will be asked to send a revised proposal to CIRM prior to funding.

Nelson told the board that he was "okay" with the revision and said his team would be back later for more funding for a larger project.
