Text of CIRM Chairman's Comments on the IOM Report

Here is the text of comments on the IOM study of CIRM from J.T. Thomas, chairman of the agency. 
"We deeply appreciate all the hard work of the IOM committee in compiling  long and detailed report and the IOM clearly put considerable thought into compiling it. This has just been released so our Board and our staff has not had a chance to look at it yet, let alone digest its findings and recommendations, so it’s premature for us to offer any opinions. We are looking forward to the IOM presentation at the next meeting of our board, the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) where we’ll have a chance to talk with the IOM directly about the report. After that we’ll put together a process on how best to proceed so that we can respond in as thoughtful a manner to the recommendations as the IOM did in making them."
