Canceled: FACT Cord Blood Inspection and Accreditation Workshop at ISCT Annual Meeting

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 3 :: Friday, April 24th, 2020

The International Society of Cell and Gene Therapy (ISCT) has decided not to proceed with the ISCT 2020 in-person Annual Meeting, originally scheduled May 27 – 30, 2020 in Paris, France due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The ISCT 2020 Annual Meeting is rescheduled to take place virtually on May 28 and 29, 2020.  The virtual meeting will be accessible remotely and on-demand, including live and recorded sessions that are certified for CME and CMLE accreditation in addition to networking events, poster halls, and 1-on-1 partnering opportunities. The highly curated ISCT 2020 virtual meeting program will leverage state-of-the-art virtual meeting technology to provide the full ISCT Annual Meeting experience that you expect from ISCT.  For more details visit:

Because there will not be an in-person ISCT meeting, the associated FACT Cord Blood Inspection and Accreditation Workshop scheduled for May 26, and the ISCT-FACT Quality Boot Camp scheduled for May 27, 2020 have been cancelled.

If the FACT workshop is not rescheduled as a virtual session, your payment can be applied to the FACT workshop at the 2021 ISCT Meeting. If you prefer to receive a refund, please contact the FACT Business Manager, Jay Ann Witt at
