Co-vice Chairman of California Stem Cell Agency Remains in Critical Condition

Duane Roth, the co-vice chairman of the California stem cell agency, remains in critical condition with brain injuries following a weekend bicycle accident.

According to a report by Bradley Fikes in the San Diego U-T, Roth's family is preparing for a recovery that will take weeks. Roth is currently in a medically induced coma.

Roth's wife, Renee, released a statement through the UC San Diego Medical Center that said,
“His condition is currently listed as critical. Duane is in the great hands of the university’s doctors and nurses and we are very happy with the outstanding care he is receiving. We do ask that our privacy be respected as Duane heals. We will be in touch to share more.”
The accident occurred Sunday in the mountains east of San Diego when Roth hit a rocky embankment or outcropping and his helmet split open on the impact.

Roth is CEO of Connect, a technology business group. He has served on the stem cell agency board since 2006.

(An earlier version of this item incorrectly described Roth as CEO of Current instead of Connect.)
