CIRM videos on YouTube

There's an Announcement, dated January 20, 2009, on the home page of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), entitled: CIRMTV: CIRM videos now available on YouTube. The link leads to a Playlist of CIRM Video Stem Cell Basics. One of these, Therapies Based on Cancer Stem Cells (4:33 min), features Catriona Jamieson. It currently has a 5-star rating.

For an example of a news release about the work of her group, dated April 7, 2008, see: From Bench to Bedside in One Year: Stem Cell Research Leads to Potential New Therapy for Rare Blood Disorder by Debra Kain, University of California - San Diego News Center. The first sentence:
A unique partnership between industry and academia has led to human clinical trials of a new drug for a rare class of blood diseases called myeloproliferative disorders (MPD), which are all driven by the same genetic mutation and can evolve into leukemia.
This research was funded in part by a grant from CIRM.
