Today, the California stem cell agency funded clinical trials in three life-threatening conditions.
A year ago the CIRM Board unanimously approved a new Strategic Plan for the stem cell agency. In the plan are some rather ambitious goals, including funding ten new clinical trials in 2016. For muc…

CIRM recently awarded $15 million in funding to QuintilesIMS to create the CIRM Accelerating which will provide support and management services to accelerate stem cell research through clinical trials. On Wedesday, the Quintiles and CIRM teams gathered to celebrate the grand opening of the Accelerating Center at Quintiles’ San Diego office.

You wouldn’t ask a goldfish to take flying lessons, right? The chances of success would be slim. But in essence, that’s the predicament in which CIRM has found itself when asking top notch stem cel…

Join us Tuesday at noon (pacific) 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.

The CIRM Board just approved funding for two clinical trials testing stem cell-based therapies to improve vision in patients with retinitis pigmentosa and kidney transplants.
December 13, 2016 Oakland, CA – A simple injection of stem cells that could help kidney transplant patients avoid a lifetime on anti-rejection drugs was one of two new clinical trials approved today by the governing Board of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).

We had a lot of fun this weekend teaching young minds about stem cells, where they are in the body, and why they are important at the Bay Area Science Discovery Day Festival! Read more about it in our blog!
Someone stole my thigh bone. One minute it was there. The next, gone. I have narrowed down the list of suspects to the more than 25,000 people attending Discovery Day at San Francisco’s AT&T Pa…

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 .
