Early Pre-Clinical

Level 1: RNA Vaccines

This course is aimed at providing pharmaceutical scientists with knowledge and confidence to start early preclinical development of RNA-LNP vaccines. The course will be offered in two parts: a live virtual classroom-based part and a live hands-on training portion. Successful completion of both parts is required to receive NanoAssemblr® Ignite™ user certification.
