This course focuses on optimization possibilities of methods in the formulation, production and analysis of AAVs. Speakers from manufacturing, laboratory and authority will show their expectations as well as their experiences in GMP-compliant work.


Gene therapies are becoming increasingly popular and offer great potential for treating diseases ranging from degenerations to congenital neurological disorders. Many DNA-based gene therapies use viral vectors to transfer the genetic material. The most common viral vector is the adeno-associated virus (AAV). Historically, this is not a new invention, it was already discovered in 1965.

With AAV, as with other products, it is always a challenge to define appropriate CQAs. But what is the best way to do this without wasting time and money? This question and how to make optimizations in analytics and manufacturing will be answered in this Course.

Target Group

This course is addressed to all people involved in the day-to-day work of AAV with manufacturing, method development and optimisation and Analysis.
