Cellular Therapies Subsections Projects

The subsections are composed of AABB members interested in common topics in the Cellular Therapies (CT) field. Member groups develop an array of ‘products’ in each area to serve as resources for other AABB members and CT professionals that include − but are not limited to− examples of procedures and templates, guidance documents, points to consider, troubleshooting tips, as well as presentations delivered by recognized experts.

New ideas are generated continuously and translated into useful tools which will be posted as they are completed.

To view the materials, simply click on the subsection name to see a listing of these resources.
