Welcome to the Stem Cellar

Today, as we here at CIRM move forward under the leadership of a new President, and as CIRM-funded scientists work on transforming their discoveries into therapies, we thought it was the right time for some much-needed improvements to our blog.

We originally launched the blog as a way to share the latest and greatest news, events and insight related to the world of regenerative medicine. And while we’ve published more than 1,000 stories to date, and shared this knowledge with researchers, policymakers, advocates and—most importantly, patients—we wanted to take our blog to the next level.

So we’d like to introduce you to: The Stem Cellar, the official blog of California’s Stem Cell Agency, and it’s new home at blog.cirm.ca.gov.

Here you’ll find the same great content you’ve always enjoyed (including our entire archives!), as well as new sections dedicated to News, Events, Ethics & Policy and our ever-popular Weekly Roundup Series “Stem Cell Stories that Caught our Eye.” In the coming weeks and months, we’ll also be adding new sections, including long-form feature stories and enhanced multimedia.

So feel free to look around, stay for a while and let us know what you think in the comments section below. We hope you enjoy what we’ve built as much as we enjoyed making it!
