CIRM Posts Timely Info on Research Standards Meeting

The research standards working group of the California stem cell agency meets on Dec. 12 to deal with the use of IVF embryos for which donors were paid and the use of somatic cells in state-funded research.

Already posted on the group's agenda is substantial background material along with other staff-prepared material clearly laying out the policy issues involved.

Interested parties have ample time to assess the matters to be decided and make their own decisions on whether to attend the meeting or send comments that can be considered next week. CIRM is to be commended for the early posting of the information.
