Coverage of California Stem Cell Meeting, Plus an Ohio Participation Possibility
The California Stem Cell Report will bring you on-the-scene, live, gavel-to-gavel coverage tomorrow of the meeting of the directors of the Golden State’s $3 billion stem cell research program.
Directors are expected to approve $16.6 million for a “teabag” treatment for diabetes that is being developed by Viacycte, Inc., of San Diego. Also on the agenda is a move to ease revolving-door problems at the agency that may recur as some of its employees seek jobs elsewhere.
The meeting begins at 10 a.m. PDT and will be audiocast on the Internet for those who want to listen. To see the PowerPoint slides being used during the meeting, you can also log on to a WebEx presentation. The agenda has instructions on how to take advantage of these opportunities.
Stem cell fanciers in Ohio will be able to actually take part from a location at the Downtown Hilton at 401 N. High St. in Columbus. The room number was not specified on the meeting agenda, so interested parties should query the agency in advance at email@example.com.
Remote participation locations in California outside of Berkeley include two in Los Angeles one each in La Jolla, Duarte and Mountain View. Remote locations are provided when some directors are unable to attend meetings.
