San Jose Newspaper Lauds CIRM Chairman Thomas

The California stem cell agency got some good news this week. The San Jose Mercury News ran an editorial yesterday that was headlined,
“State stem cell agency is taking Institutes of Medicine advice”
The 306-word editorial said CIRM Chairman Jonathan Thomas is a refreshing change from
Robert Klein, the first chairman of the $3 billion enterprise. The brief editorial said
Thomas recognizes that the eight-year-old agency "has to mature." It said Thomas was
trying to improve transparency and accountability.

The last paragraph declared,
“If the stem cell agency can establish a record as a good steward of public dollars to finance brilliant science, it can continue to play a useful role in stimulating and guiding research to bring the potential cures from stem cell research to fruition.”
