Stem Cell Culture and Analysis Cores

Some core facilities serving the Jacobs School are closed

Core directors and staff are available for questions via phone and email regarding experiment design, protocols and data analysis.

These core facilities, part of the Western New York Stem Culture and Analysis Center, facilitate fundamental and translational stem cell research and development.

Helps investigators generate induced pluripotent stem cells from human skin fibroblasts using lentiviral vectors.
Maintains and banks stem cells, and provides stem cells and training to interested researchers.
Engrafts stem cells into mice and other model systems; quantifies cell engraftment, migration and differentiation, and analyzes the behavior consequences of neural engraftment.
Characterizes and identifies epigenetic and transcription signatures of stem cells and their derived progeny using Next-Gen sequencing.
