Hitting Them With Your Best Shot: How to Determine the Most Promising Vector Designs

Time: 9:00 am
day: Pre-Conference Day


The current gene therapy landscape is a mix of novel and well-researched vector designs. Novel designs are a fresh opportunity to tackle challenges but also bring with them regulatory challenges, lack of background literature and the investment required for starting something from scratch. Hence, it is imperative to determine the most promising vector designs to invest time, money, and effort into. Is it wise to keep on

investing in new technologies? Or should we stick to what works? What kind of strategy should you have around development of technologies in this market? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed in this section.

This workshop will cover the following:

• Overview of criteria to evaluate novel and established vector designs

• How to determine the evaluation criteria pertinent to your aims

• Evaluating some novel vectors in the context of the criteria mentioned above
