News: Proposed ASGT name change to the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT)
A proposal to change the name of the American Society of Gene Therapy (ASGT) to the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) has recently been adopted by the 2008 Membership Committee and forwarded to the Board of Directors of ASGT. The Board has unanimously approved the proposal, which is now being forwarded to the general membership of the Society for a final vote in April of 2009. The Membership Committee's rationale in making this forward-looking proposal is that the concept of gene therapy includes gene-modified cell therapy, and an inclusive name will empower the Society to expand its membership base and help foster further collaborative research to advance the use of genes and cells as medicine to treat disease. 27 Nov 2008.
