Meeting Notice and Agenda 0305 0311 public comment

Organized Pursuant To Government Code section 11346.5(a)(17)



In December 2006 CIRM published its first Scientific Strategic Plan, which served as the blueprint for implementation of CIRM’s scientific programs and procedures. The 2006 Strategic Plan has served the agency well over the last two years and has been of enormous value in guiding CIRM to remarkable progress. As a responsible steward of public funds, CIRM is reevaluating its funding priorities to stay sharply focused on those research opportunities most likely to achieve therapies and cures. A “living plan,” the 2006 Scientific Strategic Plan is being updated and we are seeking input on our strategies and tactics to achieve our goals within CIRM’s lifetime.
