Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural
Gene Therapy Analytics and Manufacturing
Strategies, Analysis, Process Development, and Scale-Up of Vector-Based Gene Therapies
January 21-22, 2020
Part of the Cell & Gene Therapies pipeline
Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Gene Therapy Analytics and Manufacturing conference will take an in-depth look at the challenges facing the formulation, characterization, analysis and scale up of gene therapies. The conference will examine critical challenges facing the analysis, characterization, quality control and bioproduction process development and scale-up, of viral vector-based gene therapies such as AAV, lentivirus and retrovirus.
