Whitepapers on Advancing Stem Cell Therapies
It's hard to keep track of all the stem cell advances each month. That's why we summarize the month's news, events and upcoming dates to remember. You can subscribe to receive these newsletters each month by RSS feed or by email.
Each scientific publication by our grantees describes an advance that could ultimately lead to new therapies.
Our annual report describes research advances, tells patient stories and proves insights about CIRM's impact on regenerative medicine from our chair and president.

On June 25, 2013, The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM), and the Cell Therapy Catapult (Catapult) convened a roundtable on June 25, 2013 to define technological challenges and identify potential solutions in three key areas:
- Manufacturing clinical-grade cell products derived from stem cells
- Characterizing the cell product
- Imaging cells post transplantation.
This white paper summarizes the proceedings from the roundtable and highlights key recommendations
In June 2014, The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) convened a workshop that followed up on the 2013 Key Tools and Technology Hurdles Roundtable. The 2014 workshop further discussed technological challenges and included a proposal for a CIRM sponsored Manufacturing Center of Excellence. This white paper summarizes the proceedings from the workshop and highlights key discourse.
We periodically commission reports by outside experts to clarify the impact of the agency on health care and the economy and to assess our effectiveness.
