ABOUT US

The Biotherapeutics Association of Australasia (BAA) is a peak body representing cellular therapy and tissue bankers in Australia and New Zealand.

The purposes of the Association are:

  1. To facilitate the development of scientific and technical knowledge for people working in, studying for or interested in the field of biotherapeutics.
  2. To facilitate the continuing professional development and education of members of the Association, both formally via educational initiatives and informally via relevant suitable means, which may include conferences; magazines, journals and newsletters; websites and other electronic means; and workshops and networking forums.
  3. To act as a collegiate association which promotes knowledge sharing and professional interaction amongst members.
  4. Within the context of knowledge development and sharing, to act as an information conduit between members and regulatory bodies in order to:
    • Foster and promote best practice in the retrieval, preparation, storage and distribution of human biotherapeutic products for purposes of transplantation, diagnosis, teaching and research in Australasia.
    • To foster and promote best practice in the development, preparation/manufacture and distribution of biotherapeutics, including (but not limited to) cellular therapies (e.g. haematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stromal cells), scaffolds and breast milk.
    • Provide expert advice and guidance to those public authorities responsible for controlling and licensing Tissue Banks and manufacturers of biotherapeutics.

We welcome membership from individuals from all fields of biotherapeutics and related disciplines. Please select the Joining BAA tab for information on membership and becoming a member.
