San Diego Consortium for Regenerative Medicine to Build $115 Million Stem Cell Research Facility in San Diego

Written by on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

The San Diego Consortium for Regenerative Medicine has announced its plans to build a $115 million stem cell research facility in San Diego, according to the Associated Press

The Associated Press reported as follows:

The facility would be located on more than 7 acres owned by the University of California at San Diego in the Torrey Pines area biotechnology cluster. . . . The state is expected to provide a large portion of the facility’s funding. Californians in 2004 approved a measure creating a $3 billion stem cell research agency.

A panel for the state agency has determined the San Diego consortium is eligible for $43 million. A condition to receive the state funds is that the building be completed by 2010.

Consortium officials estimate they would need to raise at least an additional $72 million to complete the center’s funding. They said an out-of-state donor whom they decline to name has agreed to contribute $30 million.

It will be interesting to see how the plans for this new center compare to the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine ("CIRM") facility.  We will keep you posted.
