CIRM grantees have publish their research advances in internationally recognized peer reviewed journals. Each publication describes an advance that could ultimately lead to new therapies.
We periodically commission reports by outside experts to clarify the impact of the agency on health care and the economy and to assess our effectiveness.

President's science picks
Each month CIRM president Alan Trounson sifts through stem cell research advances and publishes his list of those he thinks move the field toward new therapies.
CIRM publishes a monthly newsletter to update the public about advances by CIRM grantees and CIRM events in the previous month. We also make sure people know about meetings and events happening near them. You can subscribe to receive these newsletters each month by RSS feed or by email.
CIRM's efforts are guided by a set of clear goals laid out in our strategic plan, which we update every few years to reflect changes in the field.
Each year CIRM publishes an annual report describing research advances, telling patient stories and providing insights from our chair and president.
CIRM holds workshops to bring together experts in areas we think are going to be important in the development of new stem cell-based therapies. After each workshop, we produce a report that summarizes the meeting and it's findings.
CIRM staff members are recognized experts in stem cell science, biotechnology and biomedical ethics. They publish regularly in high-profile journals where their insights help guide the field.
CIRM is proud of our record of fiscal responsibility. Our funding for administrative costs remains below 6% of our total expenses each year. These yearly financial statements provide details about where our money is spent.
