Today, the UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center (BSCRC) announced the latest California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) grant recipients – including molecular, cell and developmental biology professor, William Lowry, who will receive $1.5 million to advance stem cell-based technologies to treat intellectual disability (ID) syndromes.

According to the announcement, “ID syndromes represent a large group of diverse disorders with no cures that affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide and approximately 6.5 million people in the United States.”

Lowry is one of four researchers at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA who were recently awarded $5.7 million in CIRM grants.
