ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the awarding of research grants by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) in California. The institution did not award a single grant until taxpayers voted it into existence because lawsuits were holding up its funding. It will also provide upcoming awards worth $520 million to fund a network of new and renovated buildings across the state. But despite such achievements, it also encounters problems in funding stem-cell research in the state. The board that distributes its funding is stacked with representatives from various universities. To avoid possible problems in awarding research grants, CIRM enacted rules to limit the conflict of interests posed by the arrangement.
