ISCT is a global association driving the translation of scientific research to deliver innovative cellular therapies to patients. ISCT is the only group focused on pre-clinical and translational aspects of developing cell therapy products. As such, ISCT helps academic, government and biotech/pharma sectors transform research into practice and product.

In 2014, the 20th Annual Meeting will be held at the Palais des Congrès de Paris, a full service, world class convention center. It is anticipated that over 1000 delegates will attend ISCT 2014.

ISCT’s Annual Meeting will provide the most current educational information regarding a wide range of therapies. The ISCT Annual Meeting educational objectives include:
The translational aspects of and issues involved with all types of cell and tissue-based research.
To promote cross-disciplinary participation from scientists, clinicians, laboratory personnel, regulatory professionals, and KOLs from both academia and industry.
To identify and address the scientific, clinical, laboratory, and regulatory issues related to each type of cell-based research/therapy.
A forum for the transfer of knowledge and experiences from senior practitioners and key opinion leaders to young scientists in the field.
