The Rensselaer Center for Stem Cell Research is a shared use center providing comprehensive support for basic stem cell research with tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications.
Our state-of-the-art multi laboratory facility supports collaborative projects involving cell biology, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and informatics research. The laboratory is a fully equipped aseptic cell culture facility that supports hypoxic studies and rapid workflow development including automated liquid handling, high-content and time-lapse imaging, and specialized algorithms for data analysis.
We offer consultation for academic and industry partners regarding the design and performance of investigations, including the selection of cell types, phenotypic analysis, and imaging strategies. Rensselaer’s Stem Cell Research Core has received support from the New York Stem Cell Initiative (NYSTEM C026717) and the New York Spinal Cord Injury Research Board (SCIRB, C030080 and C030239).
