Focused classroom, online, and hands-on learning for scientists in the biopharmaceutical industry covering topics, techniques and technologies to help accelerate non-viral genomic medicine development

Early Preclinical Level 1 – RNA Vaccines

This 2-part course provides pharmaceutical scientists with knowledge and confidence to start early preclinical development of RNA-LNP vaccines.


Learning Objectives: 

Confidence starting experiments with NanoAssemblr® Ignite™


RNA-Vaccine specific training with case studies


Basic understanding of LNP formulations and parameters to explore


Hands-on training with complete workflow


Ignite user certification



Part 1: Fundamentals - Now available in a convenient self-paced online format. An accessible program providing an intuitive molecular-level understanding of self-assembly & microfluidic mixing, PNI's 4 pillars of a successful RNA vaccine program and considerations for optimizing RNA-LNP formulations, with examples and case-studies.


Part 2: Practical - Live hands-on and pre-recorded guidance through the entire preclinical RNA-LNP formulation workflow including calculations, NanoAssemblr® Ignite™ operation, RNA-LNP formulation with GenVoy-ILM™, downstream processing and particle characterization.

Requires completion of Part 1, a NanoAssemblr Ignite, and a GenVoy-ILM training kit, sold separately.



What Participants Have Said

"I thought it was really informative, but still manageable for the audience. The best online course I have attended.”




"Please thank Shell for doing an excellent job which was very clear, well thought out and well paced."
"Very clear instruction and overview of lipid-based nanoparticles, it helps me prepare and optimize LNP formulation"




"It was very useful in refreshing general knowledge about targeted drug delivery and explaining new possibilities of RNA vaccines.”
