Stem Cell Research at the James & Lillian Martin Centre

iPSC colony on fibroblast feeder cells

The Stem Cell Facility is part of the James and Lillian Martin Centre for Stem Cell Research. It is located on the First Floor of the EPA research building at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology and provides the opportunity for members of the Oxford Stem Cell Institute, and all labs across Oxford, to learn how to work with human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells and  initiate new projects using these cells. We have expertise in generating human iPS cell lines from human dermal fibroblasts and from blood, genotypic and phenotypic quality control, genetic manipulation of iPSC, and directed differentiation of iPSC to macrophages, microglia, astrocytes, neuronal lineages, and more recently to lung epithelia. 

Enquiries should be directed to the Head of the facility, Dr Sally Cowley.
