$30 Million Available for Immunology Research

The California stem cell sweepstakes began another round this week with a $30 million jackpot for about 20 researchers.

CIRM is looking for applications from both research institutions and businesses as well as proposals for scientific collaboration with researchers from Germany and Australia.

This round will finance “transformative” research into cell transplantation immunology. The hope is that it will lead to development of immune tolerance of pluripotent stem cell derivatives and potential correction of autoimmunity.

Mandatory letters of intent are due Dec. 15. Winners should expect checks in the mail next summer.

Applications and details can be found here.
