Directory Category: Shared Resource

The goal of the UAB Vector Production Facility (VPF) is to accelerate the translation of novel viral vector-based therapies into Phase I trials in patients. Through the production of research and clinical grade vectors in accordance with Good Laboratory and current Good Manufacturing Practices, we assist investigators who wish to conduct safety and toxicity studies, submit investigational new drug (IND) applications and perform early stage clinical trials. The UAB VPF is a multi-use facility, with expertise in the production of cell banks, recombinant proteins, and a variety of viral vectors including herpes simplex virus and conditionally replicative adenoviral vectors, two promising platforms for cancer therapy.

VPF also is experienced in producing other clinical products.
