Minister Clement, Governor Schwarzenegger Join Forces to Fight Cancer Through Cancer Stem Cell Research
Date:6/18/2008

SAN DIEGO, CA, June 18 /PRNewswire/ - Canada and California, two world leaders in the area of cancer stem cell research, will join forces to gain a better understanding of the role cancer stem cells play in the development of the disease.

"This is an historic agreement. Now we are working together across borders, bringing together the best minds from both countries with the goal of learning how to prevent and treat cancer for the benefit of all of our citizens," said Tony Clement, Minister of Health. "I am proud to announce Canada will contribute more than $100 million to the Cancer Stem Cell Consortium (CSCC), which will work with the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) in this exciting new partnership."

"California is committed to being a leader in stem cell research, but no one state or nation should do this alone," stated Governor Schwarzenegger. "Entering into collaborations such as this, which bring together leading medical research capabilities, have great potential in improving the lives of not only Californians, but people around the world."

The three-year agreement lays the foundation for CIRM and CSCC to explore collaborative approaches to evaluate, fund and monitor cancer stem cell research projects.

The announcement was made at the BIO 2008 International Convention in San Diego, California by Canadian Health Minister Tony Clement, Dr. Alan Trounson, President of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), Robert N. Klein, Chairman of the Governing Board of CIRM and Dr. Martin Godbout, CEO of Genome Canada and Chairman of the Board of the Cancer Stem Cell Consortium.

The first potential area for collaboration under consideration is the upcoming CIRM Disease Team grants. These grants will provide an opportunity for researchers in California and Canada to collaborate, broadening the potential pool of expertise that can be applied toward research in a specific area.
