We are experts in iPSC modelling and CRISPR genome engineering. Our services include the high-throughput generation of induced pluripotent stem cells derived from patients or healthy donors. To standardize iPSC generation and increase throughput, we make use of an automated tissue culture robot. We offer researchers within the University Medical Center Groningen and the University of Groningen as well as external scientists our expertise, training, and experimental support. The facility:
The facility builds improved iPSC models and, therefore, accelerates progress in regenerative medicine. The models broaden our knowledge of the biology of iPSCs and their differentiated progeny. They also enable us to screen for modulators of their biological behaviour and to build personalized models of disease that can help physicians develop new therapeutic approaches.
Together with the Netherlands Cancer Institute and Leiden University, we serve as a national infrastructure (ScreeninC) to support targeted and genome-wide CRISPR functional screens.
