All CIRM Research Grantees

Stem Cell Research Funding Source:

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, CIRM.

Also known as California’s Stem Cell Agency.

California supports embryonic stem cell research through Proposition 71, a $3 billion ballot initiative passed by 59% of voters in 2004.  That is projected to provide about $300 million in stem cell research funding annually for 10 years. Established a state constitutional right to pursue stem cell research, including through SCNT or research/therapeutic cloning, and prohibits funding of human reproductive cloning research.
