Today is the Last Day to Weigh in on the Direction of the California Stem Cell Agency

Don't like what the California stem cell agency is doing? Want more clinical trials and less basic research? Do you think the agency is too cozy with business or not cozy enough?

Here is your chance to tell the agency directly what it should do. But today is the last day that you can participate in the survey of the public -- that includes researchers -- concerning the direction of the state's $3 billion enterprise.

The agency has mounted an online questionnaire that can be completed anonymously. It has 13 questions -- possibly the agency's lucky number -- with plenty of space to add comments.

The survey is part of the agency's revision of its plan for spending its remaining $800 million over the next few years.

"No one has a monopoly on good ideas," said Randy Mills, president of the agency, in soliciting comments from every quarter. Mills is expected to bring his latest thinking on changes in the agency's strategic plan to its governing board in late July.
