• Is the Principal Investigator or Co-P.I. of a peer reviewed research grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).
• Is the Principal Investigator or Co-P.I. of a peer reviewed research grant from the NIH, NSF or other national or state agency or foundation if the primary focus of that grant is in any area of regenerative medicine including the function or use of stem cells.

Clinical Membership Eligibility
This category of membership is appropriate for faculty who are involved in regenerative medicine education or clinical programs but are not currently engaged in stem cell research.
SCRC Membership Privileges
