There was a quake in the stem cell internet as CIRM’s main website was down for a long time.

For those of us working on grant proposals, there was an alternative CIRM website that was up and working. It seems the regular CIRM email was also not working but the agency had a workaround with changing the addresses to end in cirm.us.

Fortunately, now the CIRM website and emails are back up!
