Event description
Gene Therapy Manufacturing Present & Future

About this Event

The promises of gene therapy are taking a long time to be fulfilled, in part due to challenges in developing and manufacturing gene vectors capable of safe and efficient delivery of therapeutic genes (transgenes) into patients’ cells.

Nonetheless, these challenges are being addressed in innovative ways. A variety of first-generation vectors manufacturing, both viral and non-viral, have been employed in clinical trials and the experience gained is guiding the design of gene therapy production facilities around the world.

Our esteemed speaker will share his experience on gene-therapy, from clinical trials to commercialization, focusing on manufacturing aspect of the drugs of the future.

Robert A. Baffi, Ph.D., joined BioMarin in May 2000 and currently serves as our Executive Vice President of Technical Operations, responsible for overseeing our manufacturing, process development, quality, and analytical chemistry departments. From 2000 to December 2009, Dr. Baffi served as our Senior Vice President of Technical Operations. From 1986 to 2000, Dr. Baffi served in a number of increasingly responsible positions at Genentech, Inc., primarily in the functional area of quality control.
