Human Stem Cell Use: Embryonic Stem Cell

Enhancing Facilities for Genetic Manipulation and Engineering of Human Embryonic Stem Cells at UCSD

Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research promises to be of fundamental importance in the study and treatment of various human diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and organ failure. In recent years we have made great strides in advancing hESC research as documented by the large number of successful, high-impact laboratories and breadth of research projects […]

The UCSB Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology and Engineering

Regenerative medicine is an emerging area that will only realize its great potential through novel collaborative research approaches, and the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) is well positioned to make significant contributions by leveraging fundamental biomedical research efforts with enabling technologies in materials, microfluidics and bioengineering. This proposal details plans for the development […]

The Stanford University Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Education

The goal of this proposal is to establish a premiere center for human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research and education in the state of California. Our center builds on the established excellence of faculty with research organized into four thematic areas: Human embryology, derivation of hESC lines, including disease-specific lines, and SCNT, Cell fate specification […]

A Stem Cell Core Facility for Studying Human Embryonic Stem Cell Differentiation

This application proposes to develop a Stem Cell Core Facility of ~1700 square feet to support the use of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) for a growing consortium of stem cell scientists at the home institution as well as neighboring institutions. The facility will be built and managed so as to allow use of non-NIH-approved […]

CIRM Shared Research Laboratories

Our plan is to establish a ~ 4,700 sq. ft. shared research laboratory dedicated to the experimental manipulation and ultimate clinical application of human embryonic stem cells (hESC). This Shared Research Laboratory (SRL) is centrally located on the main campus. The SRL will be used by researchers focused on understanding how hESCs are induced to […]

UC Davis Translational Human Embryonic Stem Cell Shared Research Facility

The intent of the proposed shared research facility is to provide a state-wide resource for qualified scientists in California to study human embryonic stem cells (hESC) without federal restrictions. The shared facility will encourage a spirit of collaboration and include laboratories for investigators to culture, collect, store, and analyze hESC, provide necessary services that will […]

The Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles hESC Facility

Our institution is a tertiary-care academic pediatric medical center that combines care of severely ill children, research into the causes and treatments of childhood disorders, and training of the next generation of pediatric clinical physicians, nurses and allied health care professionals and biomedical scientists. A unique focus of the research in our institution is on […]

UCSC Shared Stem Cell Facility

We have assembled a team of researchers with the aim of elucidating the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate stem cell self renewal and differentiation. Drawing on their broad range of expertise in development, genetics, genomics, molecular, cell and computational biology, these researchers will use interdisciplinary approaches to tackle problems concerning how genes are regulated […]

TSRI Center for hESC Research

The therapeutic use of stem cells in regenerative medicine will require the ability to control stem cell expansion and differentiation into specific tissue types, such as pancreatic ?-cells, heart tissue, bone or specific neuronal lineages. We have taken a chemical approach toward this problem in which large collections of synthetic small molecules are being screened […]

USC Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine: Shared Research Laboratory and Course in Current Protocols in Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research

To realize the potential of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) in research and medicine, it is essential to disseminate state of the art technology in this field to the scientific community at large. The Shared Research Laboratory (SRL) of the Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (CSCRM) at the University of Southern California will […]
