Scanty Coverage of CIRM's $28 Million in Grants

The announcement yesterday that the California stem cell agency had given away $28 million for research attracted extremely modest attention in the mainstream media.

Our automated searches turned up only two brief items today: one in the San Francisco Business Times and one on the Orange County Register Internet site. Both focused primarily on the grants in their local areas.

The light coverage was to be expected. CIRM is receiving little media attention, a situation that is likely to continue short of a scandal or major research breakthrough.
