SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — The first of a dozen major laboratories funded in part by California’s voter-approved stem cell initiative is opening in Sacramento.

The UC Davis Institute for Regenerative Cures opened Wednesday. The $62 million institute will bring together 200 scientists and lab technicians and consolidate the university’s stem cell research efforts under one roof.

Research already in progress at UC Davis includes using stem cells for HIV treatments, organ regeneration and injury repair in horses.

The institute received $20 million from bonds authorized by Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Act of 2004.

Institute director Jan Nolta says UC Davis is moving away from the use of embryonic stem cells in favor of other techniques.
