Human Stem Cell Core


The ATC Human Stem Cell Core is currently undergoing reorganization.  The Core Director has stepped down and taken another position outside of BCM. 

The Core will remain operational but some of our core services may be limited in the next few months while the search is underway for a new Core Director. 

During this interim, please direct your specific questions or requests to the following people using the core email provided:

Human Stem Cell Core Team:  

For iPS cell line derivation and other cell culture services - Ms. Hyekyung Park.

For Mycoplasma testing and PBMC isolation - Ms. Michaela McCright.

For help with CRISPR design - Dr. Dan Liu.


ATC Administration:

For general ATC iLab inquiries, please contact Ms. Myeshia Brown.

For general core inquiries, please contact Dr. Dean Edwards.


Thank you,

Advanced Technology Cores Administration




***The Core is now open!***

We are still in Phase 2!

We will have limited staff hours and no visitors will be allowed without an appointment in advance.

For project inquiries and/or appointment requests, send email to and

Please give us as much advance notice as possible for equipment sign ups. Mon through Fri between 9am and 4pm are preferable, as our core is normally locked.

Starting Oct. 1, 2020, we will offer reduced pricing for DLDCCC members. We are anticipating a price increase for FY22 (starting July 1, 2021), so please email us if you have any questions.

Email us before setting up a request.

Overview of Services


The Human Stem Cell Core (HSCC) provides a wide range of products and services related to human pluripotent stem cell research, as well as hands-on training classes for basic and advanced stem cell culture techniques. We offer cost-effective solutions to generate and characterize novel induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for in vitro disease modeling, employing “zero-footprint” technologies such as Sendai virus-based and episomal vector-based reprogramming. We also offer customized research support for experimental design and validation assays.
