GAiT is an international resource to facilitate the therapeutic use of immunogenetically matched, clinical-grade new types of stem cells (iPSCs) for the benefit of patients globally. GAiT’s vision is that patients globally will have equity of access to this new generation of iPSC-derived cell therapy products.
GAiT’s mission is to enable the global human community the opportunity to benefit from the new generation of cell therapies by facilitating the development of, and access to, clinical-grade and haplotyped induced pluripotent stem cells for the manufacture of cell therapy products.
- Achieve consensus on donor selection and screening criteria and consent standards.
- Achieve global consensus on manufacturing and quality parameters and standards required to consider an iPSC line to be of clinical grade and develop an external quality assurance scheme to facilitate the development of comparability between centres.
- Gain agreement with regulators in various jurisdictions as to the acceptability of the quality standards proposed.
- Develop a database of clinical grade iPSC lines.

How registries and manufacturers/developers can work together effectively to accelerate cell therapies was discussed at the WMDA CGT webinar this morning. Material procurement is currently a key issue for manufacturers and this includes suitable donor material.
GAiT is sad to hear of the passing of Dr Wen Bo Wang. Our deepest condolences to her family and friends. May She rest in peace.
