Although February is the shortest month of the year, it is also a very busy month! The FACT office is preparing for several educational events, committee meetings, and activities at the TCT | Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Meetings of ASBMT and CIBMTR.  The Second Edition FACT Common Standards for Cellular Therapies will be published on March 15, 2019, and the public comment period for the Seventh Edition NetCord-FACT International Standards for Cord Blood Banking, Release, and Administration  will end on March 1, 2019.  Many new events are scheduled for May and June, including a new workshop opportunity at the Canadian Bone Marrow Transplant Group Annual Meeting.  As always, FACT is grateful for our volunteers who help make all of this possible!

This month’s newsletter features educational articles, industry news, and upcoming events and activities.  Articles in this volume include:

I hope you find our information interesting and useful. We look forward to working with all of you in 2019!
