SHORT BIO

A/Prof. Lisowski, PhD MBA, is Head of the Translational Vectorology Unit at Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) and the University of Sydney. He completed his PhD at Cornell University and postdoc at Stanford University and the Salk Institute in the USA. Associate Professor Lisowski, is an expert in the development and bioengineering of AAV vectors, vector-mediated gene transfer and genome engineering, as well as vector manufacturing. He has dedicated his career to the development of individualised gene therapies for rare genetic conditions. To this end, he has played a key role in establishing AAV clinical manufacturing and the Advanced Therapeutic Translation Pipeline (ATTP) on the Westmead Precinct.

During his presentation A/Prof. Lisowski will discuss the latest tools and developments in the area of AAV bioengineering. He will discuss the importance of the screening platform and preclinical model on the function, and thus translational potential, of the novel AAV variants developed. Impact of the new vectors on our understanding of biological processes, including cell-vector interactions, will be discussed.
