IOM Proposal Not So Good, Says One CIRM Director

One director of the California stem cell agency is less than enamored of a proposal for a study of the agency by the prestigious Institute of Medicine.

Jonathan Shestack
, co-founder of Cure Autism Now and a Hollywood producer, said in an email,
“We may have complaints about CIRM, but they are not of the sort we expect IOM, its cultural and ideological doppelganger, to point out.

“Unless there is a glaring problem, having CIRM pay for an IOM report with its own money is the height of folly and a parody of good government.”

The director's Science Subcommittee is scheduled to take up the proposal at a meeting tomorrow(Tuesday).

    Easy for a director who never shows up to object to the least particle of accountability for CIRM. If he had any integrity, he'd resign and let someone actually do the job he's supposed to be doing. He's part of the problem at this renegade agency. He's a waste and CIRM is a waste.
