About the Core

Content

The ATC Human Stem Cell Core is currently undergoing reorganization and will soon be merging with the Human Neuronal Differentiation Core at the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. This should provide more efficient utilization of resources (space, equipment and personnel) and elimination of some duplication of services currently provided by each core. The new Human Neuronal Differentiation and Stem Cell Core service list will offer the combined list of services developed by the two original cores and will operate under guidelines for BCM Institutional Advanced Technology Cores (ATC) in coordination with NRI/TCH procedures.  The Director of the merged core is Aleksandar Bajic, Ph.D. and requests for services originally offered by Human Stem Cell Core can continue to be made on iLabs.
