Transforming Regenerative Medicine: Discussion Begins on California's $890 Million Approach

LOS ANGELES -- Directors of the $3 billion California stem agency this morning began discussion of its spending plans for the next five years, an $890 million effort that is designed to "transform regenerative medicine."

Jeff Sheehy, chairman of the Science Subcommitte of the board, praised the effort, especially the "metrics" that measure the agency's teams performance at all levels. He said the staff developed metrics within each area.

David Higgins of San Diego, another board member, said that CIRM's plan is much different than other strategic plans that are "boring" and "go into a desk drawer." He said the CIRM plan is "much different" and creates a pathway to success.
