In addition to the two clinical trials that CIRM is currently funding – one with Dr. Svendsen’s team and one with Brainstorm Therapeutics – they’ll also explore some of the biggest problems facing the field and where the research is heading. Dr. Ralph Kern, who is currently running a Phase 3 clinical trial for ALS we are funding, will also discuss his perspective on some of these problems as well.
