On July 2, we incorrectly reported that the consulting contract CIRM has with Alan Lewis was not mentioned at the June meeting of the governing board of the California stem cell agency. Our apologies to CIRM President Alan Trounson for getting this wrong. In fact, Trounson announced that Lewis would serve as a consultant two or three days a week.

Here is the text of what Trounson told the board, according to the transcript.
“We're having difficulties in that area(selection of a vice president for research and development), difficulties in attracting someone because of the high salaries of these very competent people in the industry to join us. So we're still in research mode at the moment, but I should let you know that Alan Lewis, who just stepped down from the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation, is going to join us as a consultant to work two or three days to help us with the clinical, preclinical programs. He's a terrific guy. I think most of you would know him. And he's agreed to become a consultant for the time being while we're still in search mode.”
