Continental 8 (Hilton San Francisco)
#282 - Gene Therapy and Delivery (II) (15D11)
This session will be devoted to the development of improved methods of gene transfer using both viral and non-viral approaches. Topics of interest include, but not limited to design of novel formulations for improved gene delivery, determination of rate-limiting steps of gene transfer, targeting of gene transfer vectors, methods for production and purification of viral and non-viral vectors and gene transfer to stem cells for tissue engineering applications. This session has been very well attended in previous years.
