Item 4.02         Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a
                  Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

On March 8, 2007, management and the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors
of Geron Corporation (the Company) determined that the Company's consolidated
balance sheets as of December 31, 2005, 2004 and 2003, the related consolidated
statements of operations, stockholders' equity and cash flows for the years
ended December 31, 2005, 2004 and 2003, and each quarter of 2005 and three
quarters of 2006 did not account for warrants issued in connection with equity
financings in conformity with Emerging Issues Task Force Issue 00-19,
"Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially
Settled in, a Company's Own Stock," (Issue 00-19). As a result, the referenced
consolidated financial statements should no longer be relied upon.

The Company originally accounted for these warrants as equity in the
consolidated financial statements. However, this treatment is not in conformity
with the provisions of Issue 00-19, which would classify these warrants as
liabilities at their fair value and thereafter re-measure the fair value at each
subsequent quarterly reporting period and record such changes in fair value in
the consolidated statements of operations.

On March 8, 2007, the Audit Committee discussed the matters disclosed in this
Item 4.02 with management and the Company's independent registered public
accounting firm, Ernst & Young LLP.

The Company intends to file financial statements required to be restated with
its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.

The Company's Press Release, dated March 9, 2007, is attached hereto as Exhibit
99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 9.01.        Financial Statements and Exhibits.

                  (a) Financial Statements of Businesses Acquired.


                  (b) Pro Forma Financial Information.


                  (c) Shell Company Transactions.


                  (d) Exhibits.

                                    99.1    Press Release dated March 9, 2007.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
