Stem cell agency steps up pace
San Diego Union-Tribune

California’s stem cell agency adopted a sweeping new plan Thursday to chart its course for the next five years and possibly beyond.

In an unusually crowded agenda, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine also heard a report about its recent move from San Francisco to Oakland, and progress with a treatment for curing “bubble baby disease.”

The plan is meant to make the best possible use of the approximately $900 million left from the $3 billion California voters gave it in 2004, said Randy Mills, CIRM president.
