TRAINING PROGRAM LEADS TO SUCCESSES IN REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Several years ago, California started its great experiment in public funding of science and created CIRM. CIRM’s goals were to train the next generation of scientists in this rapidly emerging field, and to develop a diverse workforce across a wide range of disciplines.

Former UCI postdoctoral fellow Dr. Kristine Freude recently visited the university to present her latest work. Now an Associate Professor in the Group of Stem Cells and Embryology in the Institute of Clinical Veterinary and Animal Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, Dr. Freude was one of the first recipients of a California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) training grant, awarded to train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. A former postdoctoral fellow of Ayala School Dean Frank M. LaFerla, Dr. Freude now works on stem cells from patients to study fronto-temporal dementia. www.bio.uci.edu/2017/10/regenerative-medicine/
