As a CGT Translation focused society, we draw our delegates from the CGT value chain across our three core pillars: academia, regulatory and industry. ISCT Annual Meeting delegates span the entire development pathway and represent academia, regulatory and industry organizations, collaborating to address the challenges facing the CGT sector. 

Due to strict privacy regulations, ISCT does not provide past or current Meeting delegates lists.

The best way to reach ISCT’s international translation delegate base is by attending our meeting. Registration includes access to our partnering platform which has a digital list of our meeting attendees.

Further, onsite sponsors also have the ability to opt-in to lead retrieval software available at the venue via a third-party.

Note that ISCT never offers to sell delegate/sponsor lists—please be wary of questionable third-parties claiming to possess any Meeting delegates list of ISCT.
