Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual

Gene Therapy Analytics and Manufacturing

Ensuring the Analysis, Quality and Supply of Viral Vectors

16-17 March 2021


Gene therapy is thriving, and with products now on the market, CMC, analytical, process development and manufacturing teams are now under pressure to deliver these to patients. CHI's Gene Therapy Analytics and Manufacturing conference examines the critical bioprocessing challenges facing the production, characterization and quality control of vector-based gene therapies, with dedicated sessions on viral vector process development, product characterization and how to cost-effectively manufacture these therapies at scale.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Regulatory standards and expectations
  • Raw materials
  • Analytical development and product characterization
    • DLS for aggregation, stability indicating assays,
    • Assay and potency assay development for gene therapies.
    • Managing and changing critical
  • Quality control and in-process testing
    • In-process testing, need for Replication Competent Testing (RCT)
    • Standardization for measuring vectors – universal ways to measure, are we working off the same standard, internal vs. external standards
  • Process development strategies for gene therapies – AAV, HSV, Lenti
    • Process design and development strategy
    • Clone selection
    • Increasing yield, robustness, speed of scalability, stability
  • Downstream development – resin selection, chromatography, scalability
  • Non-vector gene therapy process development
  • Commercial manufacture of viral vectors
