FACT Cord Blood Inspection and Accreditation Workshop at the 2020 Cord Blood Connect International Congress on Hold

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 3 :: Friday, April 24th, 2020

Given the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, a temporary moratorium has been placed on pre-registrations for the Cord Blood Connect international congress, scheduled for Sept. 10-12 in Miami Beach. The acceptance of abstracts also has been suspended while CBA leaders continue to assess the viability of this year’s congress.

For the same considerations, registrations for the FACT Cord Blood Inspection and Accreditation Workshop scheduled for September 9, 2020 are also on a temporary hold.

Options being evaluated include re-scheduling, as well as alternatives for the in-person conference. Updates will be provided by FACT as information is made available.
