The Baylor College of Medicine Human Stem Cell Core provides a wide range of products and services related to human pluripotent stem cell research, as well as hands-on training classes for basic and advanced stem cell culture techniques. The HSCC offers cost-effective solutions to generate and characterize novel induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for in vitro disease modeling, employing “zero-footprint” technologies such as Sendai virus-based and episomal vector-based reprogramming. We also offer customized research support for experimental design and validation assays.

The HSCC is a member of the Advanced Technology Core Labs (group of Baylor College of Medicine core facilities), headed by Dr. Dean Edwards, and part of the Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Center (StaR Center), headed by Dr. Margaret (Peggy) Goodell.
