California Stem Cell Cybercast: Multiplying the CIRM Story


Here is today's CIRM Facebook event. The number in the lefthand corner is not static.
It changes as more people view the cybercast.

California's 13-year-old stem cell research agency staged another event in cyberspace today, chalking up more than 1,200 online views for its exploration of the search for cures and therapies for Lou Gehrig's disease.

It was the second go at Facebook Live for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), as the agency is formally known.

The online event, which features disease experts and questions from viewers, bypasses traditional media and features a concrete way of measuring the event's reach both today and two weeks from today. It could be a significant communications tool for the $3 billion agency, which expects to run out of funds for new awards by the end of next year. The agency is hoping voters will approve another $5 billion in funding in November 2020.

Today's event garnered 819 viewers during its initial hour. By the time of this writing that figure had climbed to 1,262 as others found the event on Facebook.

The first Facebook event for CIRM, which discussed stroke therapy, has now recorded more than 7,500 views. Sphere: Related Content
