Creating InfrastructureTranslational Research ProjectsCIRM 2.0: Clinical Stage ProgramTraining Tomorrow's Scientists

The path from cell therapy development to life-saving treatments can be challenging, but here at CIRM we have developed a series of programs that together are poised to improve the efficiency by which much-needed therapies reach patients in need.

We began by first building a strong infrastructure and educational training for young scientists. And with the launch of CIRM 2.0, we have streamlined the process by which we award grants. In January of 2015, we opened up our Clinical Programs initiative to qualified applicants. In the coming months, we will be launching programs in Discovery and Translational.
