Dividing up $3 billion for stem cell research
How will California's $3 billion for stem cell research be divvied up around the state: Will most of the money go to cities such as San Diego and San Francisco that are hubs to large concentrations of scientists, or will it be scattered around so all geographic regions get a taste?

It's a question that scientists, local politicians and business leaders have been talking about mostly behind the scenes since before the state's stem cell initiative passed in 2004.

But it percolated to the surface Wednesday at a meeting of the state stem cell institute's board, turning what could have been a quick reading of interim guidelines for small facilities grants into a lengthy discussion.

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine plans to issue a request for applications from scientists, research institutes and universities that want a piece of more than $32 million that will eventually be made available for minor renovations and construction to create lab space that would be shared with scientists from different institutions.
