Evaluation of Gene Delivery Methods

This project is aimed at understanding evaluating and reviewing gene therapy methodologies used in products in development, assessing the risk and safety and regulatory investigations in different regions of the world. There is limited guidance and regulatory expertise in this area and current drug candidates are being dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the regulatory authorities under existing international guidelines. The intern will aid in furthering this study with assistance from staff and scientists at Charles River labs. The project will also involve a retrospective analysis of data available at Charles River Laboratories to assess the efficacy of said gene delivery platforms. A review article regarding the aforementioned methodologies will be created toward the end of the investigation.
