Weinberg on the California Stem Cell Initiative

Joanna Weinberg has posted a paper (co-authored with Joel Adelson of UCSF) on the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), which was created by ballot initiative to make stem-cell research a constitutional right. Joanna and Joel conducted interviews and reviewed documents to evaluate what kind of start CIRM has gotten off to. They concluded that CIRM has overcome start-up challenges, been selectively influenced by criticism, and adhered to its core mission.

Stem cell therapy has revolutionized the ways treatments are done. Though there is a lot still left to be invented, I hope scientists find out the correct methods to cure diseases like cancer and ATS etc.
