UC San Francisco and UC Davis Seek Millions for Recruitment of Scientists

LA JOLLA, Ca. -- The University of California at Davis and the University of California at San Francisco are both appealing rejection of multimillion dollar proposals that would help them recruit highly regarded scientists to California.

The proposals were turned down by reviewers for the California stem cell agency.  However, appeal letters were submitted to the board by Arnold Kriegstein, director of the stem cell program at UC San Francisco, and Thomas Vail, chairman of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the same institution.

The appeal letter from UC Davis was signed by Frederick Meyers, vice dean of its medical school; Jan Nolta, head of the school's stem cell program, and Diana Farmer, chair of the Department of Surgery.

The letters were not available online at the time of this writing.
