City of Hope Alpha Clinics team has been continuing their effort in conducting cell and gene therapy during this award period. Additionally, the team put together a strong application for the CIRM Alpha Clinics Network Expansion award in June and was awarded $8M for the next 5 years. The new COH Alpha Clinics will be led by Dr. Leo Wang. Dr. John Zaia will continue his involvement as the Chair of the Advisory Council. We look forward to work with CIRM and our network partners to accelerate world class science to deliver transformative regenerative medicine treatments in an equitable manner to a diverse California and world.
