Our ISCT Telegraft is a play on the word “telegraph”. Now, the Telegraft is evolving. From first a printed copy arriving by snail mail to email to as easy as loading a webpage, providing our members with all key news and information, ISCT is rolling out a new Telegraft with an updated name - Telegraft Hub - to move to a new mode of communication with our members.
The Annual Report details how ISCT is advancing translational science through our work with the World Health Organization on nomenclature, another step in what is becoming a closer relationship between the WHO and ISCT. We are building global educational partnerships with the Andalusian Network for the Design & Translation of Advanced Therapies (ANd&tAT) to create an online education program for ISCT members based on core topics from the Master in Manufacturing of ATMPs at the University of Granada/ANd&tAT. The ISCT Europe Master in Manufacturing of Advanced Therapy Medicine Products (ATMPs) Scholarship Programme has provided scholarships for ISCT Europe Members. ISCT is addressing critical workforce needs in a global partnership with the NSF Engineering Research Center for Cell Manufacturing Technologies (CMaT) to deliver a critical program developed by field experts across academic, regulatory, clinical, and commercial domains. Scroll down further in the Annual Report to see updates from regional leaders, more on our global partnerships, recognition of ISCT champions, Cytotherapy, Telegraft, and more and more and more. Do you have ideas for educational initiatives that ISCT may pursue? Would you like to volunteer to teach or to contribute to any one of our educational activities, webinars, or planning for more in the future? Let us know of your interest by contacting the ISCT Head Office, and you can also see our Volunteer Center for information on how to apply to any of our >40 standing committees.
With each of the modes of ISCT communication and interactions to foster cell and gene therapy translation, the unit operations are similar: Compose, Encode, Transmit, Receive, Decode, Interpret. But where, you might ask, is the master index, the almanac, the register, the chronicle of ISCT? Why, that would be the ISCT Annual Report. Whether you are a new member or a longtime member, I guarantee you will be amazed at the global reach and contributions of ISCT throughout the cell and gene therapy translational spectrum. At each box or circle highlighting an initiative click to explore the details. The vital stats are there on our three pillars where you can click on any of the Translational Science, Regulatory and Quality Operations, and Commercialization icons and dive deep into initiatives and resources for each.
