Merced Sun-Star

UC Merced professor Kara McCloskey was recently awarded a highly competitive $500,000 grant to continue research in human stem cell biology, as part of an effort to enhance stem cell research in California.

In February, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine approved more than $27 million for Basic Biology V Awards, and McCloskey’s grant is included. The leads for this effort include Stanford University and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
