Stem Cell Core

Overview of Services

The Stem Cell Research Core provides comprehensive support for basic stem cell research with tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. Our state-of-the-art facility supports collaborative projects involving cell biology, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and informatics research. We offer consultation for academic and industry partners regarding the design and performance of investigations, including selection of cell types, phenotypic analysis, and imaging strategies. The laboratory is a fully-equipped aseptic cell culture facility that supports hypoxic studies and rapid workflow development including automated liquid handling, high-content and time-lapse imaging, and specialized algorithms for data analysis.  


The core serves the Rensselaer Center for Stem Cell Research (RCSCR, NYSTEM Contract C026717).
