PACT is an NHLBI-funded initiative that is committed to the advancement of effective cell therapies. PACT supports the development of novel cell therapy products by providing production assistance to the cell therapy community, as well as educational training via web seminars and at meetings. Production assistance is provided through the funded contract manufacturing of therapeutic cell products at five PACT cell processing facilities. These facilities offer scale-up capability and expertise in the translational development needed to produce cell therapy products under cGMP and cGTP regulations. PACT’s educational training focuses on translational development, scale-up and manufacture of cell therapy products, quality assurance and regulatory issues.
PACT is currently accepting and evaluating applications for product manufacturing and translational services. Applications can be submitted online through the PACT website at http://www.pactgroup.net.
