CSMC Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core


The Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Core at the Regenerative Medicine Institute uses the latest techniques to reprogram, expand, and characterize human iPSCs from human skin or blood tissues of healthy subjects and diseased patients. iPSCs are then turned into specific cells of the human body including components of the nervous system, eyes, blood, bones, heart, gut, liver, and pancreas, for use by researchers. Applications of this technology include human disease modeling-in-a-dish, developing human reporter cell lines via genetic modification, drug screening on pathological human cell types, and potentially developing cell replacement or regenerative therapies. The iPSC Core offers: (1) PSC quality control and characterization services, (2) bio-banking and PSC thawing, (3) imaging services, (4) cell lines, (5) custom MEF generation, and (6) training.
