I made it here in one piece to Berkeley at the Claremont Hotel driving through torrential rain to get here for the CIRM Board Meeting discussing the recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report on CIRM.
The Board is in intensive discussion as I type. Some members seem more in favor of change and others are more reluctant. I’m more of the opinion that the IOM got it wrong on most issues. Still many I’ve talked with believe that CIRM needs to craft some kind of response to IOM that shows some responsiveness.
