The Global Alliance for iPSC Therapies (GAiT)
Breaching silos to advance iPSC therapies
The Global Alliance for induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapies (GAiT) supports the implementation and clinical application of therapies derived from induced pluripotent stem cells to the benefit of patients globally.
GAiT activity is funded by a global consortium of organisations: the New York Stem Cell Foundation (New York, USA), the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult (London, UK) the Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine (Toronto, Canada), the Korean HLA-Typed iPSC Banking Initiative (Seoul, Korea), the French Institute of Health and Medical Research INSERM (Paris, France), and the University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong, Hong Kong).
More information on GAiT is available in this recently published open access article here.
GAiT serves as a central, international resource for those organisations who are developing therapies from clinical-grade induced pluripotent stem cells and to support the expansion of this nascent field.
With the support of its international partners, GAiT already has an early position on manufacturing, regulatory and quality standards, and GAiT’s intention is to support the delivery of the next generation of cell therapies.
