Upcoming: Live Coverage of Today's California Stem Cell Meeting

BURLINGAME, Ca. -- The California Stem Cell Report will provide live, gavel-to-gavel coverage today of the meeting of  the governing board of the $3 billion California stem cell agency.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. PDT. Stories will be filed as warranted throughout the day. On the agenda are the first recommendations from the agency's new scientific advisory board, an update on the agency's critical translational research program and changes in its conflict-of-interest rules for grant reviewers. At the time of this writing, neither the recommendations of the science advisors or the report on translational grants is available to the public.

For those who wish to follow the board action live, the agency is providing an Internet audiocast and a WebEx Internet connection. Full details are on the meeting agenda. For those who have not used either in the past, we recommend that you log on in advance of the 9 a.m. PDT meeting to work out any kinks.
