The Town Forums provide an interactive opportunity for individuals to learn how CIRM is investing Proposition 71 funds to improve human health and about advances in stem cell science from some of the most distinguished researchers in the field.
Each Forum features three CIRM-funded speakers who will speak briefly on a particular topic, followed by a question and answer period. The speakers will provide an overview of the current state of stem cell research, cell therapy in a particular disease area, and other applications of stem cell science such as safety testing in drug development.
Free and open to the public. Seating is limited, please RSVP to reserve a space (see below for email for each event).
