T Cell Engineering
with Lipid Nanoparticles
On-demand course for convenient self-paced access.
Delivering exogenous genes encoding engineered T Cell receptors or gene editing nucleases is an essential step in creating engineered CAR T cell therapies. Learn how lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) – used in RNA medicines and vaccines – can be applied in your research to engineer primary human T Cells for developing future cell therapies.
• Understand how and why RNA and LNPs are revolutionizing cell therapy
• Learn the fundamentals of non-viral lipid nanoparticle gene delivery, how LNPs are made, how they work, and how they are used in a variety of applications
• Learn how to rapidly and easily make mRNA-LNPs and how to apply them to transfecting primary human T cells in the cell therapy workflow
• Leaders in both academia and industry
• University Professor, Post Doc, Research Associate, Students in cell therapy
• Principal Scientist, Technology Leader, R&D Scientist with familiarity with cell therapy and electroporation or viral vectors seeking to understand LNPs and their applications in cell therapy
• Certificate of completion
• 12 months access to on-demand content
• 2-hours recorded classroom-style lecture
• Recorded in-lab demonstration of RNA-LNP preparation and application in ex-vivo T cell culture
• Knowledge test
