Viral Vector

The mission of the Viral Vector Core is to pave the way for gene delivery in neuroscience research. The Viral Vector Core is focused on high-titer, high-throughput production of Lentiviral vectors (LV) and recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) to deliver and express interested genes in either dividing or non-dividing mammalian cells, primary culture and in vivo. 

Researchers must provide viral vector to the core for production.  The common lentiviral or rAAV vector plasmids are available from the core, and researchers can discuss cloning strategies with the core director.  However, the vector core is not staffed to do the cloning of new vectors for individual researchers.

A fee for service is charged per vector production. The Viral Vector Core is partially subsidized by the NINDS and CND, and this subsidy will apply to those who are a part of these organizations. Investigators interested in getting more information on the Viral Vector Core including the fee schedule should contact Xinping Huang at 404/727-4191 or xhuang4@emory.edu .
