UC Davis has broken ground on its new $62 million UC Davis Institute for Regenerative Cures. The facility is supported with a $20 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) and is one of just seven entities in California that is being designated as a "CIRM Institute." The research facility will house the university's expanding stem cell research program, including a highly specialized research and testing lab known as a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facility. Once the federally certified facility is open, researchers will be able to prepare cellular therapies for clinical trials, perhaps as soon as next fall. The clinical trials will use adult stem cells to explore new treatments for Huntington's disease, retinal occlusion (vision impairment), tissue damage from heart attacks, and peripheral vascular disease. CIRM has awarded more than $34 million to research efforts at UC Davis. In 2005, the NIH awarded $6 million to UC Davis to fund a Center of Excellence in Translational Human Stem Cell Research, one of only two such centers in the nation.
