The Charles C. Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology, with support from the Dean of the School of Medicine, has established a Core facility that generates induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) for researchers on a fee-for-service basis. Services: The iPSC Core generates custom-designed iPSCs from primary mammalian cells (e.g. mouse, dog, human), including disease-specific human iPSCs. The Core is currently using both lentiviral- and sendai viral vector systems to deliver reprogramming factors to cells. Both systems are efficient, with the latter system having the advantage to generate iPSCs with a non-DNA-integrating vector system. In order to obtain further information about our products (e.g. currently available human and mouse iPSC lines) services, service pricing, to schedule consultations or placing service requests, please contact us at or visit our web page at
