Friday Deadline for Nominations for IOM Panel Studying the California Stem Cell Agency

If you have not yet made nominations for the 14-member Institute of Medicine panel that will assess the operations of the $3 billion California stem cell agency, this is the last week that you will have a chance to do so.

Friday is the deadline for the IOM's call for nominations.

The institute is looking for "expertise in (but not limited to) stem cell research, developmental biology, bioethics, research administration, financial structures for biomedical research, program evaluation, economics and finance, business administration, and intellectual property."

Adrienne Stith Butler, the IOM study director, said this morning that she has received about 200 nominations so far, which she said is about normal for studies that she has worked on.

You can read more about the $700,000, 17-month study here, including the formal call for nomination.
