A Year in The Life of California’s Stem Cell Research Program

This is a continuation of an article titled “A Year in The Life of California’s Stem Cell Research Program” written by Don C. Reed, Sponsor of Roman Reed Spinal Cord Injury Research Act, Founder and Co-Chair of Californians for Cures, and Vice President of Public Policy for Americans for Cures Foundation.

CIRM NEW CELL LINES AWARDS

After 8 years of being stuck with a tiny number of ancient stem cell lines, America desperately needs new ones--$25 million went to derive new cell lines. Some were disease-specific: allowing us, for the first time in history, to watch the development of Alzheimer’s disease in a Petri dish, instead of only seeing—too late—its devastating results on a person.

Other stem cell lines are needed to compare embryonic stem cells with the new kind of cells, induced Pluripotentiary Stem cells (iPS). As we struggle to find out if the new (iPS) method can be made safe for human use, or even as a research tool, we also need to know if it can really do the job.

And who will be allowed access to these new stem cell lines funded by CIRM?

These valuable biomaterials will be available to any responsible researcher working toward cures…

New buildings, new stem cell lines-- how about some new scientists?
