CIRM- The CA SC Agency

|

Who does not know what CIRM is?

The California Stem Cell Agency stands primarily for a waste of money, questionable appropriation of funds and no results for the enormous amount of money that has been wasted on cell research which was pretty much  doomed from the start.  

What is not to like about the agency? Business as usual in the SC sector career research, which goes on for generations without creating therapeutics for the sick?

Anyway- since the arrival of Randall Mills- former CEO of Osiris-  CIRM is gradually being transformed to the better. Before his arrival- a commercial SC developer who was looking for funds for a project, had to go through an application procedure. which took 2 years. At least Mills has cut that period into 4 months, which is still not great, but acceptable I presume. Change- yes- but it is about time after over 10 years and piles of wasted money though....

This is what CIRM says about themselves

The mission of CIRM, California’s Stem Cell Agency, is to accelerate stem cell treatments to patients with unmet medical needs.  
When taking action, we consider what impact our efforts will have in these areas:
Will it speed up the development of a stem cell treatment?
Will it increase the likelihood of success?
Will it fill an unmet medical need?
Is it efficient?
In addition, our Standards Working Group has developed research standards that make sure our grantees are following the highest standards in their research. We've worked closely with other state and federal agencies to align our standards and to protect patients.
Some therapies that come out of stem cell research involve transplanting the cells themselves. Others will be drugs that were discovered through modeling diseases in a petri dish. Still others will be diagnostics that allow doctors to diagnose and treat diseases more effectively—or through technologies that open up whole new fields of research. Our funding promotes all areas of stem cell research that show promise to accelerating treatments to patients in need.
