Human Embryonic and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core
In June 2007 UCLA received close to $3 million dollars from CIRM to develop a shared research facility dedicated to continuing research on existing human embryonic stem cell lines as well as to the creation of new human embryonic stem cell lines.

This 4,700-square-foot, multi-user laboratory space has four tissue culture areas that can be reserved by UCLA and non-UCLA stem cell researchers and allows human embryonic stem cell research that is either not permitted due to current federal funding restrictions or not technically feasible in individual research laboratories.

UCLA’s iPS Core facilitates the derivation and distribution of iPS cell lines.
