    The UCSC Training Program in Systems Biology of Stem Cells is sponsored by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), established in early 2005 with the passage of Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative. The California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3) has augmented the UCSC program by funding an additional scholar. The first set of scholars chosen for the UCSC program started in July 2006. This story begins a series of spotlights on the research conducted by these scholars.
