Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $580,000 to Californians for Stem Cell Research, Treatments and Cures to support a ballot initiative to renew funding for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). CIRM is a bond-funded state agency that funds stem cell and genetic research focused on treatments and cures for chronic disease. Our science team believes that developing safe and effective stem cell treatments is an important area of research and has been impressed by CIRM’s past grants.

This falls within our work on scientific research, specifically within our interest in advancing transformative basic science.
