The Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Core offers the following services:
- Generation of hiPS cells using two integration-free methods: episomal and sendai virus reprogramming. We reprogram fibroblast cells and B cells using these technologies.
- Maintenance and expansion of hES cells (hES cell lines available: H1, H7 and H9)
- Differentiation of hES cells and hiPS cells to neural progenitor cells, mature neurons,cardiomyocytes, hepatocytes, mesenchymal stem cells, osteoblasts and adipocytes.
- Transdifferentiation of human somatic fibroblasts to induced neural stem cells.
- Genome editing
