Date:3/3/2010

The objective of the PACT program is to continue to advance cellular therapy research in the areas of regeneration of damaged/diseased tissues, organs, and biologic systems, and targeted treatments for serious diseases without effective therapies. Five (5) Cell Processing Facilities will support translational research in novel cell therapies, to advance the field of cellular therapy, and to enable scientifically meritorious basic science research to reach the clinical trial stage.

(PRWEB) March 3, 2010 -- On January 15, 2010, five (5) Cell Processing Facilities: Baylor College of Medicine Center for Cell and Gene Therapy, Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope, Center for Applied Technology Development, Center for Human Cell Therapy Boston, University of Minnesota, Molecular and Cellular Therapeutics Facility, The University of Wisconsin - Madison, Waisman Clinical BioManufacturing Facility and a Coordinating Center, The EMMES Corporation, were each awarded a five year contract. “We are very excited with continuing to support the cell therapy community and implementing new initiatives aimed at advancing the development of new cell therapies,” says NHLBI Project Officer Traci Heath Mondoro, PhD.
