“It’s an ambitious plan, but you never achieve anything worthwhile by playing it safe.”
Jonathan Thomas, chair of the agency’s governing board, said the strategic plan “began with us throwing out all our preconceived notions of what we do, and instead focused on what was possible with the time and money we have left.”
The proposal is set for discussion and action at the directors’ Science Subcommittee meeting next Monday and goes to the full board on Dec. 17 for final approval. The meeting will be based at CIRM's new headquarters in Oakland with remote, teleconference locations for the public in San Diego and Los Angeles. Specific addresses are on the agenda.
While the plan is called a draft, it is not likely to undergo significant changes. However, interested parties can weigh in with comments by emailing them to CIRM at this email address email@example.com by 5 p.m. Dec. 3.
