The ASCCT is supporting efforts of the Center for Alternatives to Animal 
Testing (CAAT) at Johns Hopkins University to codify Good Cell Culture Practice 
(GCCP) for induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. With this email, we would like 
to request nominations (including self) for participation in a 2.5-day workshop 
to take place in Baltimore June 1-3, 2015. The workshop aims to build on 
previous efforts (http://www.atla.org.uk/good-cell-culture-practice/ and 
http://www.atla.org.uk/guidance-on-good-cell-culture-practice/) to develop and 
publicize GCCP for in vitro test methods using iPS cells. GCCP are important to 
ensure data standardization, quality, reliability, and reproducibility, and are 
essential to facilitate the regulatory use of iPSC-based methods.

The workshop will bring together a small group of scientific and industry 
experts, regulators, and journal editors to discuss and agree upon recommended 
practices.

Please send a statement of interest and CV for the nominated person, with clear 
indication of experience working with iPS cells, to the ASCCT Secretary, 
Kristie Sullivan, at ksullivan@xxxxxxxx<mailto:ksullivan@xxxxxxxx>. Please 
include affiliated institution and contact information. Statements should be 
sent by March 31.
