About the Portal

The STEM CELLS PORTAL is an interactive, multimedia resource, designed to provide the global community of stem cell researchers common linkage among the many regional and international stem cell research tools, services, organizations, and learned societies.  This will include linking labs worldwide in our stem cell community, providing access to cell line databases, protocol databases, new technologies, discussion boards, blogs, new stem cell news and literature, calendars of meetings and events, newsletters, networking and job opportunities, and online access to the journal’s peer reviewed stem cell and regenerative medicine literature.  The Portal also offers the option for groups to manage access controlled pages available only to members.

The Portal covers all aspects of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, tissue-specific stem cells, cancer stem cells, the stem cell niche, stem cell genomics and proteomics, translational and clinical research, and technology development.

Contact the Portal Editor at portaleditor@alphamedpress.com to discuss collaborations and future directions.

Partners

The Stem Cells Portal is proud to work with the following organizations to help advance stem cell research by providing information and resources to scientists.

To discuss ways in which your organization can help promote stem cell research by partnering with the Stem Cells Portal, please contact the Portal Editor.

The International Stem Cell Registry

ISCR

 

Mission
The mission of the University of Massachusetts International Stem Cell Registry is to provide a searchable, comprehensive database that includes published and validated unpublished information on all human ES cell lines as well as other pluripotent stem cell lines.

This free online resource, funded by a grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is intended to be tool for researchers in academia and in the private sector as well as the public.  The website provides a wealth of information about various topics related to stem cells.  The registry itself is a searchable, continuously expanding database of information on specific stem cell lines and currently includes profiles of over 190 human ES and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines. The profiles contain data on the derivation, availability and characteristics of each line.  In addition, a key unique feature of the registry is a searchable database of publications related to the properties and applications of each cell line.

The goal is to offer current information on all known human ES cell lines, including those approved by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for federal funding and those derived through other public or private funding sources. The registry will include cell lines from non-profit institutions, academic centers, research enterprises, stem cell banks and industry based in the United States and abroad.

 

What you can do:

Browse hES and iPS Cell Lines iscr image 2.jpg
Search the Registry - By name, markers, IVF status, subclones, etc.

Search the Literature - A searchable database of research articles that feature iPS and human embryonic stem cell lines that are currently listed in the registry. Publications are also listed in the profile for each cell line.

Find Articles Characterizing Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines - An ongoing compilation of studies that characterize the properties of stem cells.

Get Research Protocols – For derivation, growth and differentiation of hES cells and iPS cells.

See Images - Showing specific details about morphology and marker staining of human ES cells

About the BLCB

The Stem Cell Bank of Barcelona (BLCB) is a functional unit of the CMR[B], dedicated to the derivation, maintenance, characterisation and preservation of embryonic stem cells, with the aim of developing research activities in the area of regenerative medicine. In terms of infrastructure, the Bank comprises cell culture, characterisation and cryobiology laboratories.

The principal midterm objective of the BLCB project will be to achieve the capacity to create cell lines free from xenobiotics and in GMP conditions to obtain material useable in clinical research. The close collaboration between the BLCB and the CMRB research laboratory will enable an optimisation of the culture conditions with the aim of carrying out research in the therapeutic field.  Its mission will be to generate a record of stem-cell lines, with the aim of improving research in the area of embryonic stem cells with its own research projects. 

Available Lines and their Characterization:

ES2 Cell Line
ES3 Cell Line
ES4 Cell Line
ES5 Cell Line
ES6 Cell Line

Research Topics:

Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) culture methods
New hESC lines derivation
GMP workflow development for hESC lines derivation
New hESC lines derivation from abnormal embryos
