Welcome to the UConn Cell and Genome Engineering Core

About Us

Established in 2006, the University of Connecticut (UConn) Cell and Genome Engineering Core has substantially contributed to Stem Cell Research conducted in Connecticut and beyond by providing a central source of technologies and materials for research on human pluripotent stem cells: embryonic stem cells (hESC) and induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC). The Genome Editing arm of the Core uses cutting edge genome engineering technologies to develop cellular models.

Our Core is a collaborative effort.

Pluripotent Stem Cell Reprogramming, Genome Editing, and the Cell Bank are currently located at the UConn Health campus in Farmington.

The Genetics and Genomics Division, including the Chromosome Core, is located at UConn Storrs campus.

Single Cell Genomics is based at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington.
