ABSTRACT
The article reports that scientific leaders at four major research institutions in La Jolla, California have planned extensively for the upcoming grant-making process behind the scenes. On May 6, 2005 San Francisco, California beat out San Diego, California to be the headquarters for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. On May 6, 2005 the stem cell board approved a three-year, $45 million training grant to fund 200 postdoctoral research and clinical fellowships at the state's universities and other research institutions, said Adam Silber, a spokesman for the institute.
