Tissue Engineering and Cellular Reprogramming

Overview

The core provides consultation, equipment, facilities and technical support for the generation and reprogramming of a wide range of viable embryonic and neural cell types in culture and in vivo and the analysis of integrative cellular, molecular and functional properties generated from these experimental paradigms. The core houses 2 six-foot and 1 four-foot Edgegard TC Laminar Flow Hoods, 2 Steril Gard III Biosafety Hoods, P2 facility, an EMS OTS-4000 Vibratome and 12 Forma Scientific Water Jacketed Tissue Culture Incubators equipped with separate O2, CO2, N2 and additional gaseous mixture and temperature controls to support these services.
