Illuminating Breakthroughs in
Cell Therapy Analytics

Advancing Safety, Efficacy, and Standardization
for Transformative Treatments

A private network for Cell Therapy Analytical community

designed by the Cell Therapy Analytical community

There’s no doubt that cell therapy holds enormous potential to revolutionize medicine. However, a growing number of clinical holds and regulatory delays have limited the number of cell therapies reaching the market, leaving many unanswered questions and unclear guidance. That’s why a robust analytical strategy to confidently prove safety and efficacy has never been more important. 

The Cell Therapy Analytical Development: Searchlight network has been designed by the analytical community specifically for companies who want to work together, rather than in isolation. Our aim is to benchmark, standardize and optimize analytical standards, regardless of cell type or sub-modalities. By doing so, we can accelerate the development of safe, efficacious, and potent cell therapies and become a unified voice to align with and influence regulators.

Join our global network of cell therapy leaders today and become part of a powerful community that is shaping the future of cell therapy analytical development!

Business critical conversations

Virtual cornerstone meetings

We facilitate, structured, discussion-driven, Cell Therapy Analytical-focused quarterly meetings for member companies.

Each high-impact 90-minute meeting takes place virtually via Zoom. The meeting agenda is carefully curated and focused on the topics and critical challenges requested by Searchlight members.
Member companies are represented by one internal champion with strategic oversight over its Cell Therapy Analytical program to ensure that each discussion is high-value, high-impact, and delivers tangible outputs for members to take back to their organization. 

Innovation doesn’t happen in isolation

Searchlight makes meaningful progress

“This is a fantastic idea…the network has the potential to allow us to align on practices or guidance that we can not only take back to our own organizations but make visible to the wider community.”


"By bringing together key players to share knowledge and experiences in one platform, we can bridge the gaps we have right now in cell therapy analytical development.

Working together with other companies in the cell therapy space to come up with a common analytical approach or standards is hugely valuable and I’d expect to accelerate my own projects through this network.
