The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event and will be staffed at significantly reduced levels. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues first (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing) and to escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Genetic Engineering and Gene Therapy Core


The Genetic Engineering and Gene Therapy Core provides access to an expanded array of customized viral and non-viral vectors, cell marking and reprogramming services, and state-of-the-art reagents for site-specific gene insertion. The mission of the core is to work cooperatively with investigators to facilitate the development of genetic engineering reagents required for their in vitro and in vivo experiments.


  • Generating recombinant viral vectors and special non-viral vectors
  • Providing premade and customized viral or non-viral vectors to investigators
  • Generating genetically marked cell clones
  • State-of-the-art reagents for site-specific gene insertion for cell marking, phenotypic correction/modification or down-regulation of gene expression
  • Training, consultation and educational services
