YORBA LINDA, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2017

Recent FDA approval of the first Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cell (CAR-T) therapy offers cancer patients more promise than ever for curative effects. However, many technical challenges in T cell gene delivery still remain in order for this therapy to become a standard of care practice.

In this webinar, which is sponsored by the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific, participants will learn from the current industry trends and challenges of cell and gene therapy manufacturing and gain a better understanding of the benefits of innovative new upstream technologies for virus generation in suspension.

They will receive an overview of the new solutions from Thermo Fisher for small-to-large-scale serum-free, suspension lentiviral production – LV-MAX™ Lentiviral Production System. This will include new editing tools for primary T cells that increase knock-in and knock-out efficiency and addresses non-viral delivery barriers through protocol optimization.

Dr. Xavier de Mollerat du Jeu, the director of research and development of Cell Biology/Transfection at Thermo Fisher Scientific, will be the speaker for this event.

de Mollerat du Jeu studied molecular biology and plant physiology at the University of Montpellier II in France and received his doctorate in human genetics from Clemson University. As a director of R&D transfection group at Thermo Fisher Scientific, he is working on creating and improving new nucleic acids delivery for both research and therapeutic applications.
