The Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core Facility is part of the Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM) at Boston University.
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) generated by forced overexpression of defined transcription factors in somatic cells hold great promise for human disease research and personalized medicine. iPSCs show extensive self-renewal and have the ability to become any cell type in the body, providing an inexhaustible source of cells for in vitro disease modeling studies, screening of pharmacological compounds and regenerative therapies. The Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM) iPSC Core was created to expedite the use of iPSC technology by providing essential services and support to on-campus investigators and the broader scientific community. We will provide all available iPSC lines free of charge to the entire academy research community.
