Stem Cell Network
Our Stem Cell Network gives researchers access to technology, equipment and expertise for carrying out dementia and non-dementia research projects involving induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).
The DPUK-funded network comprises stem cell laboratories based at Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford, and UCL.
Download our list of available iPSC lines, featuring details of:
- mutation group
- number of donors
- number of cell lines generated
- how these cell lines can be accessed
Use our technology and equipment in your dementia research projects
Any researcher looking to conduct dementia iPSC projects can book our technology for their experiments through individual stem cell technology labs.
