Viral Vectors, Vaccines and Therapeutics
Viruses are broadly used in modern medicine with prophylactic vaccines as the best proven technology. Most recently, viruses have been used as gene therapy vectors to cure patients with genetic deficiencies or mutations. This kind of virus can also be used to train our immune system to recognize and clear up cancerous cells using for example CAR-T technology. In a more direct approach to treating cancer, oncolytic viruses have been modified in such a way that they selectively infect and eliminate tumor cells, without affecting healthy cells.
