Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has a longstanding commitment to patient safety by ensuring high quality cellular therapy (CT) programs. As part of this commitment, there are several Quality Assurance teams, and each is charged with ensuring program success from a specific perspective: donor related, product related, and clinical treatment related. The combined efforts of these teams ensure quality and ongoing compliance to the highest of standards for cellular therapy programs.
In keeping with those industry standards, our CTQA teams maintain independent reporting structures. This means that, because of independent reporting, everything we do is transparent and intended to ensure the very best cellular therapy services, products, and clinical trials for patients.
