Yposkesi to give talk on gene therapy vectors at Virtual Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mediterranean, April 6 – 9, 2021
Brian Mullan, Ph.D, head of development and innovation, will address supply challenges in, and new approaches to, speeding new therapeutic drugs to market
Corbeil-Essonnes (near Paris), France – March 24, 2021 – Yposkesi, a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation (CDMO) dedicated to the production of gene therapy drugs, today announces that Brian Mullan, Ph.D, head of development and innovation at Yposkesi will present at the annual Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mediterranean being held virtually April 6-9.
Challenges in increasing yields in gene therapy vector production have created a bottleneck for developers of gene therapies seeking to advance clinical trials and commercialize new therapeutic drugs. Novel manufacturing approaches are being developed to improve yields.
Dr. Mullan will share insights on developments in impurity management, automation for analytical testing, and plug and play approaches, among others.
Event: 2021 Virtual Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mediterranean
