Process and Product Development Subcommittee

  • Assess emerging cell processing technologies and forecast their impact on the commercialization process.

Projects and Objectives

  • Educational Webinars: Process Development is a discipline learned on the job and there are few texts that cover many of the best practices used in the field—and fewer available that discuss Cell Therapy-specific requirements. The Process and Product Development Subcommittee develops educational webinars to cover best practices in Cell Therapy Process Development. Click here to view upcoming webinars.
  • White papers: White papers are an important vehicle for the PPD to educate and influence the field. White papers will be published in peer-reviewed journals to increase credibility and visibility of the PPD and ISCT. Click here to view the published PPD white papers.
  • ISCT Annual Meeting: The PPD will be actively involved in the organization of the ISCT Annual Meeting. At least one session in the Strategies for Commercialization Track will be organized by this committee.
