SAN DIEGO, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Diego Consortium for Regenerative Medicine (SDCRM) today announced that it has received the highest score in three of four categories from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) on Part I of the Major Facilities Grant Application.

SDCRM's application, which was submitted last October, earned scores of 99 for basic research and discovery, 95 for preclinical research, 94 for preclinical development and 93 for use and contribution. Each of the four areas was evaluated on a scale of one to 100. Scores were approved by the Independent Citizens' Oversight Committee (ICOC) on Jan. 16. The Part I application contained information about SDCRM's scientific program, including the consortium's focus on the areas of neuroscience, hematopoiesis, heart disease, ophthalmic diseases and diabetes, among others.

"We are pleased that CIRM and the ICOC recognize the advantages of this type of collaboration and the need for a centralized location to conduct and translate research," said Edward Holmes, M.D., SDCRM's President and CEO. "This facility will enable the outstanding investigators who have and will join SDCRM to pursue the type of stem cell research that leads to breakthroughs in our understanding of human disease and where results with the greatest potential to help patients are translated into new therapies."

SDCRM will submit Part II of the Major Facility Grant Application, which contains technical information about the facility and how SDCRM's scientific program aligns with CIRM's objectives, in February. ICOC review and ultimate funding decisions will take place in April of this year.


Formed in 2005, the San Diego Consortium for Regenerative Medicine (SDCRM) is a nonprofit organization that marshals the intellectual resources of four world-leaders in life sciences research, including the Burnham Institute for Medical Research, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, The Scripps Research Institute and the University of California, San Diego. In addition to the collective strength of its members, SDCRM's research program goals are to invent research tools and technologies to hasten the pace of stem cell research progress and to discover and develop diagnostics, therapies and cures to relieve human suffering from chronic disease and injury.
