GOALS

The Cell Therapy Network has the main objective of contributing to the treatment of human diseases through the use of cell therapy and other advanced therapies. To achieve this purpose the collaborative work of the components of the network has been divided into three programs with specific objectives corresponding basic science, preclinical and clinical trials. These lines of action develop a common strategic research plan that is described as "from the bench to the bedside and return" and that constitutes the basic cycle of research in the TerCel Network.
