And we’re back!

You may have noticed last week that the official CIRM website and our beloved Stem Cellar blog were offline for a few days.  

While we received some fun theories about the outage from our readers (we were not “hacked”, and it was not a ransomware attack), the explanation is much more technical: CIRM’s websites experienced an outage due to an issue with our Domain Name System (DNS).  

We’re happy to report that our wonderful IT team has since taken care of the issue and our websites are back online. The CIRM team recognizes that website outages are never fun and apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.  

As a result, CIRM has extended the upcoming submission deadline for the EDUC5 COMPASS Training program by one week to May 24, 2022, 2:00pm (Pacific Time), and the deadline for the DISC0 Foundation Awards to May 26, 2022, 2:00pm (Pacific Time). These changes are reflected on our website

We thank you for your patience as we figured all of this out. Now, we’ll resume sharing the wonderful content you’ve grown accustomed to over the years!

  1. FYI: my WordPress websites had been effected with a similar snafu. All is better now!

    I look forward to updates.
