17aug11:00 am2:30 pmAnalytical Methods to Characterize Gene Therapy Products


Event Details

Gene therapies, whereby a therapeutic gene is inserted into a patient’s cells, have shown massive promise to treat and prevent different diseases. Along with the development of the actual gene, the development of a safe and efficient delivery system is of equally high importance.

Join us for this luncheon seminar as three of our scientists, Drs. Andrew Hanneman, Christopher Sucato and Ian Parsons, discuss the analytical methods used to characterize gene therapies including delivery vectors such as recombinant adeno-associated viruses (rAAVs) and lentiviruses. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this interactive session that includes lunch, plenty of discussions and a certificate of completion for those that attend.
