Los Angeles (June 5, 2007) - The Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) and its affiliated Childrens Hospital Los Angeles have been awarded a total of $6.4 million in Shared Research Laboratory Grants from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).

These grants will fund dedicated laboratory space and equipment for multiple researchers and institutions to share for unrestricted stem cell research. USC's grant also includes funding to develop an educational course in current protocols in stem cell research.

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles received $2.8 million to build a 3,000-square-foot centralized laboratory area that will be housed at the hospital's Smith Research Tower.
