The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has announced the winners of its 2010 Stem Cell Awareness Day poetry contest. Two winners and two finalists were selected by a panel of three judges; all four will receive "a framed stem cell image of their choice from CIRM’s Flickr" page, according to the agency. Andy Levy, a software marketer from Woodinville, Wash., took top honors this year for his poem "Birth, Rebirth." Levy, who has a daughter with type 1 diabetes, told CIRM that he and his family "are hopeful that stem cell research will contribute to a cure."
