Newly designed viral vectors could lead to improved gene therapies

Aravind Asokan, PhD

UNC and University of Florida researchers created viruses to deliver gene therapies while evading pre-existing immune system responses. Congratulations to Aravind Asokan, Assistant Professor of Genetics with a Joint Appointment in Biochemistry and Biophysics of whose findings provide a road map for designing virus strains that can evade neutralizing antibodies.
