California's $3 billion stem cell agency is inviting the public to a road show next Monday in Los Angeles that will feature the chairman and president of the research effort.

The agency says the public will learn about the "exciting progress being made in stem cell research and what it could mean for you, your family and loved ones."

The one-hour session will be at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center from noon to 1 p.m. In addition to Jonathan Thomas, chairman of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), and Maria Millan, CEO of CIRM, three speakers from Cedars are scheduled.

They are Shlomo Melmed, Cedars-Sinai executive vice president and a member of the CIRM board; Eduardo Marbán, director of the Cedars Heart Institute, and Clive Svendsen, director, Cedars Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute.
