Addressing the Challenges of Therapeutic Vector Development The dynamic landscape of molecular biology has bolstered gene-therapy endeavors, underscoring their true therapeutic potential in recent years. Investigators have come to realize that gene therapy is only as good as the vectors employed to deliver the molecular payload. For many researchers, vector development is a common yet laborious practice, often without much thought to how the process may affect more important downstream applications. In this GEN webinar, we will discuss factors that are critical for viral vector development from the analytical scale to larger clinical-scale manufacturing modalities. Drawing attention to these parameters will ultimately lead to better downstream transductions for gene expression and knockdowns or genome editing. A live Q&A session will follow the presentation, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists. Free Registration! View It Now!
