Cooling Down or Heating Up

Around the globe, this is a time of seasonal change. For some of us, this season is cooling down. For some of us, things are heating up. 

No matter where each of us is in the world, is the ASTCT community cooling down or heating up? Easy answer. 

We are heating up!

Have you seen ASTCT’s line up of upcoming events? True to our mission, we are heating up to bring you the best in educational events.

  • The Clinical Education Conference is this week! ASTCT is kicking off the Clinical Education Conference on Thursday. We are hosting more than 200 APPs, Nurses, and Fellows in Miami, Florida, for the first in-person CEC event since 2019. If you can’t attend, watch social media @ASTCT for day-to-day coverage.
  • AcCELLerate – virtual but packed with education. Registration for the November Accellerate Forum is going strong. I am excited for this special event where physicians, payers, government agencies and industry members come together to discuss the key priorities in the cell and gene therapy. You can now register for this event to join these important discussions.
  • Leadership Course – applications opening soon! One of my favorite ASTCT programs is returning for 2023. The ASTCT Leadership Course is a year-long program that provides training and develop the next generation of leaders in the field of hematopoietic cell transplantation and cellular therapy.
