Advancing Gene Editing and mRNA Vaccine Technologies in Brazil

March 9, 2022 | 2-5:40 p.m. (BST)

The goal of this program from ASGCT and the Brazilian Association of Cellular and Genetic Therapy (ABTCel-Gen) is for speakers from the U.S. and Brazil to come together and share their expertise on vaccine technology and gene editing. Speakers will discuss the impact of mRNA on the vaccine field and the challenges and successes in manufacturing and viral vector design. The latter half of the event will focus on in vivo and ex vivo gene editing, from basic science through clinical development.
