Arnold Schwarzenegger At UCSF Stem Cell Event

17 Dec

Today, Eli Broad made a $25 million gift to fund UCSF's
stem cell program. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger addressed the audience of distinguished guests. The Governor said that Broad's donation should offer hope to the "millions of people who suffer from
spinal cord injuries, diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple
sclerosis and many other illnesses." The funding is the largest single private donation to the university's
stem cell program and is a major source of funding for the $123
million  Institute for Regeneration Medicine building which will open in 2010. Read the press release here.
