Take advantage of the recent exciting research findings in the field, and try to develop a potential cure for heart failure. Will you be able to design a virus which helps to revert heart failure in patients?

About the Viral Gene Therapy Virtual Simulation Lab

Does using viruses as a form of therapy sound like science fiction to you? This may come as a surprise, but it’s actually a technique on the rise used to deliver functional genes into patients. In the Viral Gene Therapy lab, you will learn about the use of modified viruses and how to equip them with therapeutic genes. Take advantage of the recent exciting research findings in the field, and try to develop a potential cure for heart failure. Will you be able to design a virus that can help to revert heart failure in patients?

Techniques In Lab

  • Co-transfection of mammalian cells
  • Viral vector production
  • Electron microscopy

Learning Objectives
