Bacteria Lab, Retroviral Production & Vector Surgery

In this lab bacteria are grown to produce DNA, which we use in further experiments such as viral vector production.

This platform is used to produce viral vectors for gene transfer, both in vivo and in vitro. The vectors produced here are onco-retroviral and lentiviral vectors.  The vectors can be produced at very high titers and used directly for in vivo injections. The vectors are also used for in vivo modifications of cells, e.g. for reprogramming.

This surgery suite is specifically used for intracranial injections. The vectors will transfer genes to the brain and possibly ameliorate disease symptoms. The vectors may also be sued as tools to understand for example miRNA biology, or to create models of disease.
