Stem Cell Snippets: Swells, Scholars and Door Knockers

Here are links to recent, interesting news stories, press releases or information connected to California stem cell issues.

CIRM Gala – Aldrich Tan writing on sanfranciscosentinel.com – Possibly the only coverage of the event, includes many photos with the headline "Swells turn out in force to support CIRM fundraising event."

CIRM Scholars – San Francisco Business Times -- "Demand for fellowships funded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine's training grants are far outstripping available spaces, according to Bay Area institutions awarded funding."

Q&A with Alan Lewis, new CEO of Novocell, of Irvine, Ca. – Written by Terri Somers in the San Diego Union-Tribune – Lewis, who is fond of "photographing old door knockers," says, "We expect to be the only company to provide a cell therapy for all insulin-requiring diabetics -- approximately 6.5 million patients in the U.S. alone. We also expect to generate an unlimited source of insulin-producing cells that we can encapsulate to deliver under the skin to this group of patients and hopefully change their lives by reducing dramatically their need for insulin shots as well as the many diagnostic procedures they face each day."
