Stem Cell Core


A generous grant by the Helmsley Foundation has allowed the establishment of the Helmsley Stem Cell Core Facility at Columbia University, a new multi-service production and characterization facility at Columbia University Medical Center. The Helmsley Stem Cell Core Facility is now fully operational.

We are a center of excellence in the generation, maintenance and supply of pluripotent stem cell lines as well as functional, mature, highly purified cardiac, neural and endoderm-derived cell types derived from them. We also offer support for the functional evaluation of these cells through Ca2+ imaging and electrophysiology-based characterization studies.
