StemCore - Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology

Established in 2009, StemCore is the longest-running human stem cell-focused facility in Australia. We offer a full range of services encompassing the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from various human primary cell types using various reprogramming methodologies, including RNA transfection-based technologies, through to full characterization of pluripotency. We also perform a wide range of advanced functional genomics services including custom gene mutagenesis (which can be undertaken concomitantly with the iPSC production), the generation of gene expression, intracellular process and protein localisation reporters, and provide transgenic cell lines enabling user-customizable human genome and epigenome manipulation and visualisation. StemCore strives to support stem cell research in Australia by both the provision of unique cell lines and reagents and by contributing its expertise to the design of experiments allowing the researcher to take the fullest advantage of the potential offered by human pluripotent stem cells and their derivatives for modern cutting-edge biomedical research.
