GAiT – breaching silos to advance iPSC therapies
The Global Alliance for induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapies (GAiT) is a new initiative to support the implementation and clinical application of therapies derived from induced pluripotent stem cells to the benefit of patients globally.
GAiT is supported by a global consortium of organisations including 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 New York Stem Cell Foundation (New York, USA), INSERM (Paris, France), and the University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong, Hong Kong).
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.
