The NHLBI Human iPSC Core Facility was created as the main research site focusing on the applications of induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) within the Institute. Our mission is to accelerate stem cell research in the Institute by providing investigators consultation, technical services and training in human pluripotent stem cell technology. Our facility provides training and technical support in the maintenance and derivation of human iPSC cells. We also offer cell culture quality control, as well as cell banking and distribution . We encourage researchers from various disciplines to use our facility to generate iPS lines useful for their own particular research programs . We will also collaborate with investigators to validate new technologies, and establish unique procedures for specific project. The research in the core facility will involve efforts to better understand the mechanisms underlying reprogramming as well as to accumulate hands-on experience to optimize operating procedures.
