$32 Million or $16 Million for California Preclinical Stem Cell Research?
The California stem cell agency board has begun discussion of the preclinical awards to be approved today. Reviewers approved five grants totaling $15.8 million. Three rejected researchers are asking the board to approve another $16 million. The board budgeted $40 million for the effort. At least one rejected researcher, Jill Helms of Stanford, is expected to address the full board.
