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.
