Cell labeling

 Early detection tumors in-vivo can be significantly improve of tumor treatment. The challenge in the cancer imaging is to detect non-invasively in live animals. The best approach is to utilize a lentivirus vector containing enhanced firefly luciferase (luc2) gene. Developmental Therapeutics Core and DNA/RNA delivery core are collaborating to achieve the goal.
