hESCs from UConn Stem Cell Core

The Uconn Stem Cell Core has generated four hESC lines (CT1, CT2, CT3, and CT4) that are NIH Human ESC Registry-approved and available to researchers.

For more information on the CT hESC lines, including publications using these cells, please see our current list of available hESCs.

 

hiPSCs from UConn Stem Cell Core

The Uconn Stem Cell Core has generated several control hiPSC lines from a variety of source cell types (fibroblasts, umbilical cord blood, and peripheral blood) and using multiple reprogramming techniques (retroviral, STEMCCA, mRNA, episomal, and Sendai virus). These lines are available to researchers upon request.

For more information on these hiPSCs, including publications using these cells, please see our current list of available iPSCs.

 

iPSC Rare Disease Models

Foundation for Prader-Willi Research Logo

The Uconn Stem Cell Core has collaborated with the Foundation For Prader-Willi Research to establish a Biobank housing high-quality iPSCs derived from individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome. These iPSC lines have undergone various quality control measures and are available upon request to both academic and industry researchers.

For more information on the FPWR Biobank and iPSC lines available, please visit the FPWR website.
