|A slide from today's Webinar on CIRM 2.0|
“CIRM 2.0 is going to be highly, highly competitive.”
“We’re in the time business at CIRM.”
“The application window is always open.”
In a brief telephone interview later, Mills said today's session was part of a "massive" effort on the part of the agency to spread the word about research funding opportunities involving CIRM. He said he has been surprised about the lack of awareness -- outside of a relatively small circle in California -- of the availability of CIRM cash for biotech enterprises that traditionally have been struggling for funding.
“This is going to be one wild ride.”Mills’ Webinar on CIRM 2.0 is expected to be posted on the CIRM Web site either later today or tomorrow.
