April Webinar: “Vector Design for Vaccine and Gene Therapy Applications”

DNAvaccine.com Presents: Vector Design for Vaccine and Gene Therapy Applications with Dr. Jim Williams from Nature Technology

Join us for a Webinar on April 24

Abstract:

Extensive research to improve plasmid delivery has resulted in advanced methods such as electroporation that dramatically improve gene transfer compared with naked DNA delivery. Plasmid-directed gene expression is now near the efficacy barrier that to date has prevented DNA medicine commercialization for human applications. However, most DNA vaccines and non-viral gene therapeutics currently in development utilize suboptimal vector backbones. In this webinar I will discuss DNA vaccine vector and synthetic gene insert design strategies that may be applied to create regulatory agency compliant non viral plasmid vectors with improved transgene expression and immunogenicity.
