UT Southwestern embarked on a bold journey into the future of curative medicine by establishing the Viral Vector Core lab and GMP AAV Viral Vector production facility.
Designed to support both internal clinical studies and the wider scientific community, our program has been built around a professional team with diverse expertise, working collaboratively with a broad range of stakeholders.
Our aim is to establish a streamlined, fully equipped viral vector production facility that can provide timely and efficient services to investigators within UT Southwestern and beyond. We are committed to facilitating translational research that applies gene therapy to treat genetic diseases. Our key objective is to deliver high-quality AAV vectors to our diverse client base, including academic institutions, government bodies, foundations, and biotech industry players.
