Stem Cell Board Elects Roth Vice-Chair

3/12/09

Duane Roth, CEO of San Diego’s Connect (and an Xconomist), was elected today as vice-chair of the governing board of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the state’s stem cell agency. He was nominated by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who cited Roth’s 30-year experience in San Diego’s biotech industry and at Connect, which promotes innovative technologies by helping San Diego entrepreneurs. The governing board voted to approve the creation of two vice chairs, and elected former state Sen. Art Torres, a cancer survivor and patient advocate, to serve as the other vice chair.
