induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core

 

About Us

The University of Pennsylvania induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core provides resources for disseminating human pluripotent stem cell technology within UPenn and surrounding research communities.  Our services include derivation of patient-specific iPSCs, genome engineering of stem cell lines using CRISPR/Cas9 technology, and lineage specific differentiation of iPSCs/hESCs.  The Core has a large collection of patient-derived iPSC lines and cell lines of the gastrointestinal tract (esophageal, pancreatic and intestinal) available to users.   The core is also committed to training investigators in stem cell culture techniques and providing quality tested stem cell reagents to users.   To initiate a service, please first contact the Core director Wenli Yang to set up a consultation.
