ISCT Co-Founded Organizations

 

 

Founded in 1996, the Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) establishes standards for high quality medical and laboratory practice in cellular therapies. FACT is a non-profit corporation co-founded by the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) and the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) for the purposes of voluntary inspection and accreditation in the field of cellular therapy.

The Joint Accreditation Committee-ISCT & EBMT (JACIE) is a not-for-profit entity established in 1998 for the purposes of assessment and accreditation in the field of haematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation. JACIE's primary aim is to promote high quality patient care and laboratory performance in haematopoietic stem cell collection, processing and transplantation centres through the development of global standards and an internationally recognised system of accreditation.

The National Academies of Sciences Engineering Medicine - Forum on Regenerative Medicine

ISCT is a member of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Forum on Regenerative Medicine. The Forum convenes academia, industry, government, patient and provider organizations, regulatory bodies, foundations, societies, associations, and others to discuss challenges facing the application of, and the opportunities for, regenerative medicine to improve health through the development of effective new therapies. The Forum identifies existing and potential barriers to scientific and therapeutic advances; discusses opportunities to assist in facilitating more effective partnerships among key stakeholders; examines the impact that current policies have on the discovery, development, and translation of regenerative medicine therapies; considers the unique challenges of identifying, validating, and bringing regenerative medicine applications to market; and explores the ethical, legal, and social issues posed by regenerative medicine advances.
