The Belfer Gene Therapy Core Facility (BGTCF) is a cutting-edge genetic medicine research facility that provides the capacity to:
- synthesize new gene therapy vectors based on adenovirus, adeno-associated virus, or lentivirus replication-deficient platforms
- validate the function of vectors
- perform pre-clinical testing in proof-of-concept models
- conduct toxicology, safety and distribution studies in support of regulatory filings
- produce GMP-grade vector for clinical trials.
BGTCF staff work closely with faculty in the Department of Genetic Medicine and other departments at Weill Cornell Medical College to support research in the area of gene therapy, as well as provide contract services to outside academic and corporate groups in need of the specific expertise and capabilities of the facility.
