CIRM funded 12 new research facilities in California, a $272 million investment that leveraged $1.1 billion in donor and institutional funding. This funding has already created construction jobs for the buildings, many of which are expected to be completed in the next two years. Once built, the additional space will provide room for new faculty members and create jobs for laboratory personnel. The buildings are all designed to speed the translation of basic science to human trials by creating collaborative environments and providing state-of-the-art shared resources.
