Letter from the President

FACT ushered in 2022 with the promise of a fresh start to a new year – and a time of transformation for our organization. Importantly, we completed our transition to independent status which will ultimately facilitate FACT’s ability to grow our organization and expand our portfolio to keep up with the rapid pace of growth in the cell therapy field. To that end, we welcomed new staff along with two new Board members, hosted a multi-stakeholder event focusing on advancing new cellular therapies, and scheduled in-person educational events for the first time in two years!

So yes, the future looks very promising indeed! This success could never have been achieved without our volunteers, colleagues, and friends building a peer-to-peer organization that encourages a culture of quality and has now provided service for patients for over 25 years! It is an incredible honor to build upon the transformational vision of our founding Board members. At the end of 2021, we reflected on our major accomplishments from our 25th anniversary year and are therefore extremely pleased to share these with you, too.

Happy New Year!

Catherine Bollard, MD
