Stem Cell Core



About the Stem Cell Core Facility

The Genetics Stem Cell Core (GSCC), initiated in 2012 with support from the department funding, is currently located in Beckman Center in Stanford University main campus.

Since the discovery of reprogramming technology in 2006, the induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) has become a more and more popular tool to study numerous human diseases. The fundamental goal of GSCC is to accelerate human iPSC-related research within the Stanford community by facilitating the derivation and distribution of iPS cell lines. Currently, the core provides services including:


  • iPSC derivation and distribution
  • Comprehensive iPSC characterization
  • Stem cell differentiation protocol development for human disease modeling
  • ESC/iPSC expansion and banking
  • Consultation for stem cell related research
