Leuven Viral Vector Core

The LVVC platform has specific expertise in retroviral (both gamma- and lentivirus-based) and rAAV vector technology and has a wide portfolio of techniques for target-identification and validation (expression, reporters, knock-down, knock-out, etc.). This unique alliance of research expertise has yielded two particular core strengths of the LVVC:

We have developed next generation MLV (murine leukemia virus) vectors with a more random integration site distribution for safer gene therapy with e.g. a potential application in the generation of CAR T cells.

We have developed strong expertise in the generation of viral vector based animal models and the application of (in vivo) molecular imaging techniques like optogenetics and split reporters.
