Join us for a Morning Mental Workout to get your juices flowing for the rest of the day. Lizette Caballero, MLS(ASCP)CM – Senior Supervisor of Blood and Marrow Transplant Laboratory at the University of California San Francisco – will facilitate a lively discussion of topics related to Quality, Regulations and Operation of Cellular Therapy Processing Facilities. A group of panelists have been chosen based on their expertise and enthusiasm to answer common questions discussed on the “Small-Cell Therapy Laboratories Google group”. We are planning to focus on questions related to minimal and more-than-minimal manipulation, immunotherapy, common FACT standards questions and facility operation challenges. Audience members will also have the opportunity to submit questions before and during the session using the app, microphone and/or a loud voice. The goal is to be able to interact with and learn from these experts in a casual setting. Lizette, one of the most prolific and helpful Google group members, will facilitate an interactive and informative discussion and Q&A session with experts Paul W. Eldridge, PhD – Director of the Lineberger Advanced Cellular Therapeutics Facility [O'Donnell, Lynn] at the University of North Carolina and Olive J Sturtevant, MHP, MT(ASCP)SBB,SLS, CQA(ASQ), Senior Administrative Director of Connell & O'Reilly Families Cell Manipulation Core Facility at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
