About the event

Hybrid seminar/webinar

Lorenz M. Mayr
Chief Executive Officer
Nicole Kirchhammer

Vector BioPharma uses highly engineered adenoviral vectors to achieve cell- and tissue-specfic delivery and tunable expression of genes & and gene regulators with unprecedented precision. The company is using technology developed in the lab of Professor Andreas Plückthun, University of Zurich. We will hear from Lorenz how the company got funded, how operations got started at Technologiepark Basel and what critical milestones in company creation and funding had to be achieved. Nicole will talk about the learnings of her own transition from academia to early stage Biotech and she will also present on some key applications of this widely usable platform technology for future cell/gene therapy, immuno-oncology and other areas.
