Hope you can join us tomorrow for our Hangout on Stem Cell Therapies for Leukemia. Tuesday March 25th at noon-1pm Pacific. Tweet questions now or live during the show using #ASKCIRMLeukemia or email them to info@cirm.ca.gov
 
Join California's Stem Cell Agency (CIRM) for a live Google Hangout about recent progress in stem cell based treatment strategies for leukemia. Guest experts from UCSD, Stanford, and CIRM will discuss CIRM-funded research projects which aim to bring stem cell based therapies to clinic trials.

You don't need a google+ account watch the Hangout. If you do have a G+ account, you can ask questions in the comment box. Otherwise, you can tweet questions using #AskCIRMLeukemia or email us at info@cirm.ca.gov
This Hangout On Air is hosted by California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

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

Our grantees at #salkinstitute   have created 3D kidney structures from human #stemcells (shown in the image below courtesy of Salk). Now for the first time scientists have a way of studying kidney diseases and screening drugs to treat those diseaseas in human cells.

California's stem cell agency
Introduction
We are accelerating new therapies for chronic diseases and conditions by funding California scientists carrying out cutting edge stem cell research. We train young scientists, build teams of experienced researchers and encourage industry partners to work with our scientists to bring new therapies to patients.
