Lentiviral Vectors as Research Tools in Neurobiology: Design and Production

Alessandro Papale, Riccardo Brambilla

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Viral vectors are now common in contemporary neuroscience research and their use as gene transfer tools for the central nervous system has seen an enormous growth in the last 2 decades. This chapter discusses about designing, production, and use of lentiviral vectors (LVs), one of the most popular and versatile system currently available.
