    TIME:   8:00 am PDT, 11:00 am EDT


    In this webinar for scientists and researchers, Rama Shivakumar, a senior scientist at MaxCyte Inc., will highlight powerful case studies that demonstrate the successful use of MaxCyte’s clinically validated, scalable electroporation system in the  pre-clinical and clinical scale engineering of resting and activated T cells using a mesothelin specific CARmRNA;  in the enhancement of  NK cell cytotoxicities against B cell malignancies using an antiCD19 CAR mRNA; in the transposon (Piggybac and Sleeping Beauty) based gene delivery for manufacture of CAR-T cells ; and finally in the gene editing of T cells for improving the efficacy of a TCR immunotherapy. In particular, during this webinar she will discuss how MaxCyte’s versatile ExPERT platform can enable the next-generation non-viral CAR T therapies including allogeneic, off-the-shelf modalities with the potential for enhanced effectiveness for refractory cancer.


    Learning Objectives:

    • Discover next-generation non-viral CAR approaches
    • Compare detailed case studies of both autologous and allogeneic therapeutic solutions
    • Assess the advantages of scalable non-viral approach throughout development and manufacturing process



    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
