Congratulations to Our New Inspectors!

The following individuals completed their first active inspection from April 2016 through December 2016. Congratulations and thank you for volunteering your time and expertise to advance cellular therapy! Organizations with personnel who also serve as FACT inspectors typically perform better during on-site inspections than their counterparts without an inspector.
