Scaling-up pluripotent stem cell (PSC) culture is not simply about “numbering” up. Scale-up is a technique that requires expertise and careful planning.

Today's episode is out!
Dr. Stephen Sullivan from the Global Alliance for @iPSCTherapies (GAiT) joins us to discuss the importance of quality in cell therapy products, and how international cooperation can help move therapies from the lab to the clinic.
The CiRA Foundation @CiRA_F_J and
@CCRM_ca will co-chair GAiT's Industry Liaison Committee. This Committee will focus on clarifying the translation roadmap for iPSC therapeutics and how to improve efficiencies.
We pay tribute to the participants of the first iPSC Quality Assessment Round in the Stem Cell Podcast recorded today and look forward to its broadcast on in two weeks time.

We shall be updating Participants of the iPSC Quality Assessment Round on the manuscript shortly. A professional statistician re-analysed the amalgamated dataset to fortify the paper.
GAiT is also planning its first Industry Liaisons committee meeting. Internal discussions with GAiT Director / CCRM President & CEO Michael May, to discuss schedule, materials, and format, will take place this week. GAiT will then reach out to Industry members directly.
We appreciate Participants' patience - internal reviewers of the paper were dealing with the COVID-19 response, delaying matters. As agreed, we will allow a final review before submission.

GAiT has been reorganizing for the next stage in its growth and development. More ambitious goals necessitated internal reviews, strategic decisions, and system restructuring. Thankfully our operations are now again normalized and we shall now be more communicative with members.
"I think we're ready - I would even say we're waiting," @EMA_News Exec Director Emer Cooke told me when I asked her if the agency is ready for the coming wave of ATMPs. Looking forward to sharing the full #CGMED21 keynote address with attendees next week! https://meetingonthemed.com/
