Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Program

To advance translational and precision medicine research, the CVC has established the Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Program funded by the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment. Over 600 square feet within the center is dedicated to providing quality iPSCs from a matching biorepository, consisting of somatic cells obtained from a multi-ethnic cohort of patients, representative of the region/community in which we serve. 

The Core Offers:

  • Reprogramming of somatic cells into iPSCs
  • The production of human iPSC-derived myocardial, endothelial and other cells
  • Quality maintenance and differentiation services for investigators campus-wide
