Past Workshops

Dr. Elio Vanin, Managing Director of the CBC viral vector center, hosted a series of workshops in September to educate potential users on the use of AAV and lentiviral viral vectors for their research.  An overview on the process of viral vector production from the point of having identified a gene therapy candidate to obtaining highly purified virus was also given.  Dates and locations are below.
