IABS Gene Therapy Webinar – Standards for Gene Therapy Viral Vector – March 22, 2022

Meeting objectives : 

Gene therapy is evolving rapidly with a growing number of approvals globally. Currently the majority of gene therapy products utilize some sort of viral vector, either directly as the drug product or to transduce cells ex vivo. The most common viral vectors in use at this time are AAV, lentivirus, retrovirus and adenovirus based.

The complexity of these vectors poses some analytical challenges that are common to all products based on a particular vector. This workshop aims to identify the most critical and identify where standards, physical or written, might be developed to support developers.
