Leaf Expression Systems team presents work at ISPMF conference in Helsinki, Finland


On June 11th, our Process Development Manager Dr Nick Holton and Plant Research Scientist Dr Franziska Kellner travelled to Helsinki for the 3rd conference of the International Society for Plant Molecular Farming.

Dr Kellner gave a presentation on day one of the conference detailing our work on using our plant transient expression system, Hypertrans®, to deliver VLP vaccine products against Rift Valley Fever Virus that are both inexpensive to manufacture and capable of rapid surge production, as part of our grant from the SBRI and Department of Health entitled Development of Virus-Like Particles as vaccines against emerging viral diseases”.

Meanwhile, Dr Holton presented a poster (above) on our recent work around the plant based production of enzyme replacement therapies.
