Stem cell safety grant

The California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) has awarded a grant of more than $2 million to researcher Paul S. Knoepfler, who is exploring ways to ensure that certain types of stem cells can be safely used in medical treatments. The award is part of a program that supports promising scientists in the early stages of their careers as a way to foster the next generation of California stem cell scientists. Knoepfler, an assistant professor of Cell Biology and Human Anatomy, focuses much of his work on deciphering how stem cells are programmed and how that programming can go awry, causing birth defects or cancer. The CIRM award is the ninth for UC Davis since the stem cell agency began funding research several years ago.
