The CIRM Creativity Program is a fundamental part of our mission to train the next generation of Californian stem cell scientists. Scientists who we hope will one day advance stem cell-based therapies that relieve human suffering from chronic disease and injury.
Managed by CIRM Scientific Officer Dr. Mani Vessal, this research internship introduces motivated high school students to the process of rigorous, exciting stem cell research at any one of the first class academic and research institutes in California. Offered to high-caliber students of every socio-economic status, one of the program’s main goals is to give those who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge biomedical research.
The eight-to-ten week internship culminates with Creativity Day, an all-day event where each student showcases the results of his or her research project to senior scientists and CIRM staff.

CIRM Showcase: Accelerating Stem Cell Treatments to Patients
Wednesday, November 5, 2014 | 8:30 am to 5:30 pm | UCSF Campus, San Francisco, CA | Byers Auditorium, Genentech Hall
First Look at CIRM’s Clinical Stage Pipeline & Advanced Screening Platforms
CIRM has made tremendous progress advancing stem cell therapies to patients, and expects to have 10 programs in clinical trials by the first half of 2015! The trials will span various modalities (cell therapy, mAbs, small molecules) and therapeutic areas and are increasing being partnered with major industry players including Janssen Labs, Celgene, and Biogen Idec. CIRM still has $1 billion to invest and is interested in co-funding with industry and investors - don’t miss the chance to strike the next partnership!
Join hosts CIRM and Janssen Labs for a one day event featuring presentations by a dozen of CIRM’s clinical stage programs and novel platform screening technologies. The event will provide an opportunity to learn about some of CIRM’s most exciting clinical stage programs as well as several advanced screening platforms. The event will provide an opportunity to meet the investigators, and will feature both CIRM-funded academic researchers as well as companies working across a variety of therapeutic areas and modalities.
This interactive program, held on the UCSF Campus at Byers Auditorium in Genentech Hall, is meant to serve as a meet and greet and to provide a first look at how CIRM has allocated a portion of its $3 billion under Proposition 71.
