If you would like to speak directly to the overseers of California’s $3 billion stem cell research effort, today would be a good day.
The agency will have the most ever sites available for public access in its nearly 11-year history to a meeting of its governing board. Twenty-two teleconference locations around California are scheduled to be accessible, ranging from Davis to Fresno to La Jolla as well as major population centers such as Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.
The meeting begins at noon. The public is entitled to speak to the board on any subject, including its proposals for spending its last $800 million to $900 million. (See here, here, here and here.)
Items on the brief agenda include three non-controversial matters. As usual, the California Stem Cell Report will provide live coverage of the session.
The teleconference sites are in San Francisco (3), Los Angeles (4), San Diego (2), La Jolla (2) and one each in Davis, Sacramento, Redwood City, Irvine, Oakland, Fresno, Berkeley, Elk Grove, South San Francisco, Stanford and San Jose. Specific addresses can be found on the agenda.Sphere: Related Content
