Platform Technologies to Accelerate Novel Vaccine Development and Manufacturing


The vaccine industry has undergone a revolution in technology resulting in a variety of novel therapeutic platforms that accelerate development and significantly reduce the duration of process optimization and scale-up. However, challenges in maintaining efficacy and improving process robustness remain. In this presentation, we present a comparison of these novel technologies, discuss key considerations for manufacturing, and share selected case studies for platforms such as virus-like-particles, viral vectors, plasmid DNA, and mRNA platforms.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Benefits of platform technologies in vaccine development
  • Key considerations when deciding between platforms
  • Vaccine pipeline analysis and selected case studies
