ViraVector is a single-sited research infrastructure (RI) whose primary purpose is to make viral vectors accessible "on demand" to the Portuguese scientific community and other stakeholders.

ViraVector is intended to be a full service facility (on a fee-for-service basis) that, in addition to viral vector production, also assists investigators in engineering custom viral vectors and provides training to safely manipulate them and perform gene transfer in cell and animal models. It mainly operates in the field of viral vector-mediated gene (molecular) therapy directed to unmet medical needs as well as generation of tools for basic research.

Some of the services include: design and production of recombinant Lentiviral vectors (LVs) and Adeno-associated viral vectors (AAVs), design and production of innovative mixCapAAVs, design and production of modified exosomes, development of cellular and animal models based on viral vectors and assays on cell and animal models using recombinant vectors.

VV is included in the National Roadmap for Research Infrastructures of Strategic Interest (RNIE) and integrated in the European Advanced Translational Research Infrastructure in Medicine (EATRIS-ERIC).
