We want to connect, learn from and work with you.
The EBMT is a non-profit medical and scientific organisation established in 1974 which hosts a unique patient registry providing a pool of data to perform studies and assess new trends. We aim to be the connection between patients, researchers and other stakeholders to anticipate the future of cellular and stem cell-based therapies. Our community of healthcare professionals is focused on innovation, research and the advancement of these fields to save and improve the lives of patients with blood-related disorders. Visit www.ebmt.org to learn more about membership, the Joint Accreditation Committee, International Society of Cellular Therapy-Europe & EBMT (JACIE) qualification scheme, educational opportunities and how to get involved.
The European Hematology Association (EHA) promotes excellence in patient care, research, and education in hematology. We serve medical professionals, researchers, and scientists with an active interest in hematology. We are proud to be the largest European-based organization connecting hematologists worldwide to support career development and research, harmonize hematology education, and advocate for hematologists and hematology.
The EHA and the EBMT, the two leading European societies in the field of haematology and stem cell transplantation, announced a strategic partnership to empower Europe to become a global leader in the cellular therapy field for haematological diseases, joining forces and bringing their collective resources and expertise to the newly founded GoCART Coalition.
Advancing the field of cell and gene-based therapies requires progress on multiple fronts, including creating a pre- and post-authorisation registry to monitor product safety and efficacy; harmonising data collection, centre qualification and educational requirements, and overcoming barriers in regulations designed for more traditional pharmaceutical products. To address such a wide range of complex issues, there is a need for strong collaboration amongst all relevant stakeholders.
The network is open to any relevant stakeholder, including patient representatives, health care professionals, pharmaceutical companies, health authorities, health technology assessment bodies and reimbursement agencies, European and national medical organisations and registry holders.
The first concrete activities underway include the development of a joint educational program, a multi-stakeholder review of EBMT’s cellular therapy form, and harmonisation of existing site qualification schemes to reduce inspection burden for hospitals. These are some of the areas that show the potential of this Coalition to advance the field of gene and cellular therapies in Europe in the interests of our patients.
