Thanks to stem cell research funded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, a cure for SCID could be not far off.
On April 22, 2017, the Americans for Cures community gathered and joined the March for Science in four cities in California. The March for Science, held on Earth Day, is a global, nonpartisan movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.

ALS is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that damages and destroys nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. But with the support of CIRM, researchers are working to develop ways to slow or halt this disease.
Caused by damage to the spinal cord, SCI affect 1.2 million people in the United States and has been a major focus for CIRM for research and therapy development.
