Follow Complete Coverage of Tomorrow's California Stem Cell Meeting
Keep track of all the “thrills and chills” at tomorrow’s meeting of the governing board of the $3 billion California stem cell agency with gavel-to-gavel coverage from the California Stem Cell Report.
This blog will monitor the session via the Internet from our perch in Banderas Bay in Mexico and file stories as warranted. On tap is as much as $35 million in awards. Reviewers and agency staff have approved only $29 million. But three UC Davis researchers are seeking another $1.8 million.
Also up for action are major changes in the administration of grants – all part of the CIRM 2.0 effort designed to fast-track cash and beef up the quality of applications.
The session, scheduled for eight hours, can also be heard via a listen-only audiocast and Webcast for the slides being used. Teleconference locations where the public can attend and comment are also available in Sacramento, Irvine and two in La Jolla. Specific locations and directions for the Internet access are available on the agenda.
The meeting begins at 9 a.m. PST in Burlingame.
