The Stem Cell Core Facility aims to accelerate stem cell research at City of Hope by providing critical stem cell resources and technical support. We will provide customized services for human iPSC derivation, characterization, and gene editing. These human iPSCs will become valuable tools for disease modeling, drug discovery and therapeutic development.
