International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) joins forces with Roche and Genzyme to launch Cell Therapy Industry Partnership.
Date:8/16/2010

VANCOUVER, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ - Many companies in the cell therapy regenerative medicine market including Roche, Genzyme, Athersys, Miltenyi Biotec, Hospira, Lonza and Life Technologies will join ISCT to launch a series of new initiatives that will create greater strategic alignment within the industry and drive late stage clinical development.
