Workshop aim

Technologies associated with viral systems play an increasingly prominent role in our lives, allowing us to overcome infectious or heritable disease and develop potent cancer treatments, modify crops and the environment, or produce recombinant proteins with diverse applications. The workshop on ‘Developing Metrology for Viral Systems as Molecular Tools’ is open to experts and stakeholders with an interest in developing metrology infrastructure to support biotechnologies and advanced treatments utilising viral vectors or viral like particles.

The workshop aims to explore established and emergent measurement technologies, reference materials and methods development, regulatory landscape and standardization needs and gaps for a diverse set of stakeholder-driven applications utilising these systems. The workshop will aim to cover applications covering the principle viral entities in use and develop a strategy for metrology support fostering links between public and private stakeholders and NMI/DIs prioritizing and developing measurement solutions and calibration services.


The workshop includes four sessions:

  • Session 1: Background Challenges and opportunities
  • Session 2: Entity characterisation 1. Physical Titre measurement. Molecular methods
  • Session 3: Entity characterisation 2. Towards functional measurement. Mass, Particle and Microscopy methods
  • Session 4: Standardisation and Control
