Hangout with us today at noon (PST) for a live conversation about the development of stem-cell based therapies for spinal cord injury! We'll be taking your questions at #AskCIRMSCI  and info@cirm.ca.gov 
 
Join California's Stem Cell Agency (CIRM) for a live Google Hangout about the latest progress in stem cell-based treatments for spinal cord injury. 

You don't need a Google+ account to watch the Hangout – just visit the event page at the specified time. If you do have a G+ account, please let us know if you’ll be joining us. Also, with the G+ account you can ask questions in the comment box on this event page. Otherwise, you can tweet questions using #AskCIRMSCI or email us at info@cirm.ca.gov

The Hangout will include a discussion of Asterias Biotherapeutics’ CIRM-funded clinical trial for spinal cord injury by Jane Lebkowski, PhD, president of research and development at Asterias. Roman Reed, a tireless advocate for stem cell research and spinal cord injury treatments will provide the patient advocate community’s perspectives. And Kevin Whittlesey, PhD, a CIRM science officer, will discuss other CIRM-funded research that aims to better understand spinal cord injury and to bring stem cell-based therapies to clinic trials.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

As the father of one of your panelists (the noisy one) I am delighted beyond words with the tremendous accomplishments Asterias Biotherapeutics,   the California government which originally funded the Roman Reed Spinal Cord Injury Research Act of 1999, which funded Dr. Keirstead's great work, so boldly carried forward by Dr. Lebkowski and colleagues, and CIRM, which is the pride of our state, the envy of our nation, and a friend to all the world.  I am swamped with a book deadline, but I wanted to at least wish you a collective thank you for bringing cure closer, day by day.

Best regards, Don C. Reed .

Cell division is an incredibly complex and very cool biological process. This week a CIRM-funded UCSD research team studying cell division in stem cells reported the identification of a protein that not only plays a critical role in blood stem cell function but may also provide a path to developing therapies for blood cancers such as leukemia.

Did Peyton Manning's stem cell treatment in 2011 save his quarterback career? Manning was all washed up after two major neck injuries during the 2006 and 2010 NFL seasons. Now he's breaking records and making a bid for a Super Bowl championship. But a look at the details of his treatment don't provide any evidence of benefit and may mislead others to follow in his footsteps. Read more: http://buzz.mw/b57w1_n
