Targeting of specific cells and tissues is of great interest for clinical relevant gene- and cell-based therapies. We use magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) with a ferrimagnetic core (Fe(3)O(4)) with different coatings to optimize MNP-assisted lentiviral gene transfer with focus on different endothelial cell lines.
