Viral Vectors play a major role in both gene and gene-modified cell therapies. When genetic materials needs to be delivered into a cell a viral vector is often used. There are significant options available to scientists depending on the application. Poor knowledge of viral vectors may lead to mishandling or inappropriate vector selection which could sabotage your therapy and compromise patient safety.
This training course will examine the underlying science of viruses and how a viral vector is manufactured. Once completed, you will have the knowledge and understanding to select the most appropriate viral vector for your therapy. You will also study in detail the purification techniques in accordance with the regulatory requirements. You will learn aspects such as: how vectors are engineered, how gene size and transfection efficiency influence vector selection and then finish off by contrasting purification requirements and techniques between vectors used for gene and gene-modified cell therapies.
With the Educo Post Learning Implementation Plan (PLIP) you will have the framework to apply and implement the knowledge acquired in the training, supporting you in your development. Learn more about how we deliver live online training.
