Year 5/NCE

The CIRM Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Biorepository, operated by the Coriell Institute for Medical Research until March 2018, was a critical component of the CIRM hPSC Initiative. The goal of the Initiative was to
generate high quality disease-specific human pluripotent stem cells. These iPSCs are intented to be used by world-wide non-profit and for-profit entities, for disease modeling and drug discovery and development in prevalent, genetically complex diseases.

During the first quarter of year 5 (Dec 2017 – March 2018), submissions from 2,838 subjects were received from ten submitting groups and banked at Coriell. To this date, 1,931 P10 Distribution Bank samples and 2,436 P5 Master Bank clones have been generated by FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Inc. and stored at Coriell. The Coriell catalog included Disease Specific pages, an Advanced Clinical Data Search, as well as all documents (Material Transfer Agreement and Licensing Agreements) needed to complete an order. Starting in September 2018, the CIRM iPSC Repository became fully under the management of FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Inc. (FCDI). The collection can now be viewed and ordered thought the FCDI website
