General information

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) was established by Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative. The statewide ballot measure, which provided $3 billion in funding for stem cell research at California universities and research institutions, was approved by 59% of California voters on November 2, 2004, and called for the establishment of a new state agency to make grants and provide loans for stem cell research, research facilities and other vital research opportunities. The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) is the 29-member Governing Board of the Institute; the Governing Board members represent expertise from California’s leading public and private universities, non-profit hospitals and research institutions, patient advocacy groups and biotechnology.

Hi pls respond to me via inbox o email. i have a RP patient
I decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Tree of Life Health clinic. It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit www treeoflifehealthclinics com )
ALS Formula treatment from Tree of Life Health clinic. It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit www.treeoflifehealthclinics.com ). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others.
Is the stem cell treatment now availavle for Parkinson's? What about cognition related to Parkinson's, age, and a brain bleed?
Burn victims as well
I developed a light transmitter that produces interferon neurons as we'll as T cells for swimming pools greater expetion with selection as needed I can travel need pools that will used for their clients and recovery technology backup I'm not a writers I build

Thank you for your help with Brain Storm!
Thank you for the funds to Brainstorm!
Thanks so much for the grant to BrainStorm. You probably saved countless lives of people with ALS.
