find equally innovative mechanisms for addressing product development, regulatory, manufacturing, and distribution gaps in its pipeline.

Recommendation 4-4.14Enhance Industry Representation in Key Aspects of CIRM Organization. Industry representation on the ICOC, the Scientific Advisory Board, the Standards Working Group, and the Grants Working Group should be enhanced to leverage industry’s expertise and resources in product development, manufacturing, and regulatory approval in support of the ultimate goal of bringing therapies to patients.
