News Release

Independent Review Commends CIRM's Achievements, But Calls on Institute to Revise Governance and Policies to Maintain Credibility and Impact
Released: 12/6/2012

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) has achieved many notable results during its first seven years and helped establish the state of California as an international hub of stem cell research and development, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine. However, CIRM's efforts could be enhanced by creating an external scientific advisory board to provide continuing and consistent strategic advice, by dealing more effectively with the perception of conflicts of interest on its governing board, and by reorganizing its governance to ensure that the board is able to provide independent oversight.
