As Senior Editor and in conjunction with ISCT, International Society for Cell & Gene
Therapy, it is my privilege to introduce a new inspirational series appearing in Cytotherapy
termed “Talking with Giants”. This new series celebrates the invaluable contributions
made by leaders in the field of cell and gene therapy through an informal question
and answer format. This provides a unique opportunity for journal subscribers and
society members to connect with these icons and learn more about their passion for
science, what has motivated them to achieve success, and their unique vision for the
future direction of the field. The inaugural article will feature a conversation with
Dr. Darwin J. Prockop whose dedication to the study of mesenchymal stem cells has
brought these cells to the forefront of regenerative medicine. Dr. Prockop received
the inaugural “ISCT Career Achievement Award in Cellular Therapy” in 2016 for his
outstanding contributions to the field.
