Along with its many notable advantages, lentiviral vectors' attractiveness lies in their ability to be used in a wide range of cell and gene therapy indications, beyond rare diseases to serve larger patient populations. Recent regulatory approvals and clinical trial successes have led to a growing pipeline and interest in therapies using lentiviral vectors. And with that, an increased need for a robust, scalable production technology that improves overall yield and quality.
In this webinar, our upstream and downstream innovation scientists will explore how they optimized our VirusExpress® production technology for lentiviral vectors to maximize titer while providing a streamlined platform to accelerate development timelines to clinical trials.
In this webinar, you will learn how our VirusExpress® production technology:
Upstream Scientist - Viral Vector Technology and Innovation
Hiral Gami is an upstream scientist in MilliporeSigma's viral vector technology and innovation team based in Bedford, MA. She joined our company in January 2018 and has contributed to the development of cell retention devices (CRD) for perfusion bioreactors, along with generating application data to support the launch of the cell retention device and system. Since June 2019, she has been a part of the viral gene therapy - upstream group, where she is actively involved in developing and optimizing processes for viral vector production & scale-up. She holds a B.S. and M.S. in microbiology from Gujarat University, India, and an M.S. in biological sciences, biotechnology from UMASS, Lowell.
