CIRM collaborates with many other organizations in pursuit of shared goals.
Collaboration with an organization may be formally recognised through the granting of mutual observer/liaison status, or through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). In other cases collaboration is not formally recognised but is otherwise well established through informal avenues of communication.
