Benefit # 47 (of 71) of the California Stem Cell Research Program: JOBS AND NEW MONEY

  1. CIRM provides initial funding for researchers with new ideas: people like Kathy Ivey, who moved from Texas to work with Deepak Srivastava at Gladstone Institute in California. (For the story of her training grants, see my 2015 book, STEM CELL BATTLES.)
  2. If the scientists’ ideas prove successful, CIRM may help pay for the long series of FDA tests: as it did for Gladstone’s heart regeneration efforts.
  3. The private sector may get involved. When companies are formed, theories may become therapies, available to the public. One such company called Tenaya Therapeutics was just formed to develop heart repair therapies developed with the help of CIRM, in this case from within Gladstone — with the leadership of Srivastava and Ivey.
