DNA Plasmids for the Genetic Engineering of Clinical-Grade T Cells

Our inaugural presentation for the Breakthrough Speaker Series is Dr. Laurence Cooper, on behalf of ZioPharm Oncology, presenting "DNA Plasmids for the Genetic Engineering of Clinical-Grade T cells".

The presentation was followed by a discussion with Aldevron’s President of its Nucleic Acids Business Unit, Michelle Berg, and Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, John Ballantyne. 

The group’s comments during the roundtable discussion focuses on the distinctive advantages of Ziopharm’s suite of T-cell therapies, including its proprietary non-viral gene transfer system, Sleeping Beauty, and its partnership with Aldevron to help make it happen. The discussion also highlights the significant patient need and commercial opportunity in both hematological and epithelial solid tumor cancers.
