CIRM Receives Another $112 Million

Alan Trounson, president of the California stem cell agency, last night outlined his priorities, provided more details on a key strategic review of its program and sketched out upcoming CIRM events.
Directors were also told that the agency received an additional $112 million as the result of recent California state bond sales. That should ensure CIRM has enough cash to operate until the end of 2011. Bonds are virtually the only source of cash for the agency, but they flow directly to CIRM untouched by the governor or legislature.

CIRM has posted Trounson's slide presentations on its Web site. Also included are biographies of scientists who will participate in the strategic review. You can find Trounson's presentation here, budget information here and the biographies here.
