Melissa King – California Institute of Regenerative Medicine

SIR Branch 17 will hold its next meeting on February 16, 2023, and our speaker will be Melissa King who will talk about the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine. In 2004 almost 60% of California voters approved Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research & Cures initiative. Shortly after, the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) was established to administer the $3 billion in bond proceeds and approve grant requests from qualified researchers. Melissa was a founding member of CIRM. More recently Melissa was head of field operations for California Proposition 14 which passed with voter approval and secured an additional $5.5 billion in bond monies for CIRM to continue funding research and now field trials. She helped build the patient advocacy coalition needed to get the State ballot initiative passed. The combined effect of these grants has had a significant positive economic impact on our economy and has helped propel advances in finding cures and improved treatment for people with chronic illness. Melissa has her BA from Wellesley College and a MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business.RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Members pay for lunch but its Free for invited guests.
