Recording Available From mRNA Vaccine Therapy Workshop

Masterclass: Nanoparticle formulation

Recordings from the recent Advances in mRNA Vaccine Therapies in Cancer Immunotherapy and Infectious Diseases Livestream

Nanotechnologies present new opportunities for advancing medical science and disease treatment in human health care.
At Precision NanoSystems, we strive to create and drive knowledge into the community through the Nanomedicine Innovation Network (NIN). On April 24, we held a livestream event on mRNA vaccine therapies at the University of Strathclyde with two of the industry leading experts.  Below are the recordings from their talks.

Dr. Justin Richner earned his doctoral degree from the University of California at Berkeley. He performed his post-doctoral studies at Washington University in St. Louis studying viral immunology and vaccine development. In this setting he developed, in collaboration with Moderna, a Zika virus vaccine with the novel mRNA-lipid nanoparticle gene therapy platform. Recently, he moved to the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at University of Illinois Chicago.
Click below to view his presentation on his Zika virus vaccine research and how today he is further refining the mRNA-LNP vaccines to overcome immune-suppression and combat infectious diseases which have proven a significant challenge to traditional vaccine development.
