What is NJIT’s Intro to Design & Manufacturing of Viral Vectors in Gene Therapy Program?
This online virtual training course will provide a detailed understanding in upstream and downstream processing of viral vectors used in cell and gene therapy. The course will focus on viral vector theory, technical demonstrations of bioreactors, demonstration of chromatography, principles of tangential flow filtration (TFF) and scale-up topics.
- Challenges and solutions for upstream and downstream bioprocessing and manufacturing
- Differences between the expansion techniques used for both adherent and suspension cells
- Principles of scaling up cell culture
- Cell thaw and recovery, density and viability testing, transfection of cells and perfusion
- Product collection, clarification, vector purification, vector concentration, vector storage and vector QC (analytical assays)
- Tangential flow filtration (TFF) principles
What Sets This Program Apart?
- Live interactive sessions with expert faculty with real-world experience
- Highly personalized training based on your input and feedback
This program meets virtually via video conference call.
Class sizes are limited for maximum interaction and the format is live and highly interactive.
Who Should Attend?
The course is intended for scientists and engineers from the biopharma industry interested in learning about upstream and downstream processing of viral vectors.
Attendees will need to have a basic understanding of cell culture, conventional culture methods and chromatography (affinity, protein capture).
