Calit2 Hosts Streaming Archive of First Scientific Meeting of California Stem Cell Research Initiative

San Diego, CA, November 13, 2005 -- In early October, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) held its first scientific review of ongoing efforts in the area of stem cell research. The conference, "Charting New Directions for California," featured presentations by many of the world's leading experts on stem cell research. Their presentations were webcast live by The Science Network in cooperation with BayBio and Calit2, and are now available for on-demand viewing from the Calit2 Multimedia archives.
