Kevin McCormack, Sr. Director Public Communications & Patient Advocate Outreach of CIRM

CIRM, California's stem cell institute, was created by the voters of California in 2004 when they overwhelmingly passed Proposition 71, which authorized $3 billion in funding for stem cell research in California. The institute funds stem cell research at institutions and companies throughout California (as well as institutions and companies outside of the state that conduct a portion of their research in California) with the goal of accelerating treatments to patients with unmet medical needs.

John's presentation is entitled "WEST COAST SUB ATTACKS DURING WWII."  The California coast was SWARMING with Japanese submarines in the weeks immediately following the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Between December 10, 1941 and October 1942, nine Japanese submarines sunk a dozen merchant ships between Vancouver and San Diego as well as shelling the California coast on more than one occasion--episodes little remembered today. His talk is based on interviews he conducted with the Japanese naval officers who participated in the attacks. These interviews form the backbone of his non-fiction book, OPERATION STORM, which "The Wall Street Journal" called, "a fascinating, meticulously researched, and deft account."
