CIRM support

The Alpha Clinics Network funded through CIRM has one unifying goal: to accelerate the development and delivery of stem cell therapies to patients. The UCLA Alpha Clinics Network is able to leverage the strengths of each individual clinic—so that together they form an efficient, scalable and sustainable network that will attract and conduct high-quality clinical trials. The clinics support both CIRM-funded and non CIRM-funded clinical trials by academic or industry sponsors.
