On Thursday, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) awarded more than $150 million for stem cell research projects. We'll discuss the new areas of research being funded and take stock of what CIRM has done so far. In 2004 voters approved funding the agency to put California at the forefront of stem cell research. Has the agency delivered on its promise?

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Alan Trounson, president of the California Institute For Regenerative Medicine, the state agency voters authorized in 2004 to spend $3 billion on human embryonic and other stem cell research
  • Jan Nolta, stem cell program director at UC Davis
