Core Facility

Virus Vector iLab Core

The objective of the Virus Vector Core Facility at University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) is to provide the service for production of viral-based gene delivery including adeno-associated virus (AAV). The Core will offer varieties of serotypes and virus purification for gene therapy in brain or other tissues.

In addition, the core will provide services for vector design and custom cloning to generate vectors.
