UMASS Medical School's human stem cell bank makes available first seven stem cell lines
Date:2/10/2011

log of cell materials we intend to make available to researchers," Laning added.

The seven lines now available at UMass Medical School's Human Stem Cell Bank were developed in the lab of George Daley, MD, PhD, director of the Stem Cell Transplantation Program at Children's Hospital in Boston and provided to the Bank last year. Among the cell lines now available for distribution are five human embryonic stem cell lines (hESC) and two induced pluripotent lines. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) are a type of stem cell derived from other adult cell types such as skin cells. Six additional lines from Dr. Daley's lab have been banked and are scheduled to be made available for distribution later this year.

"We are pleased and excited that access to these seven stem cell lines will be provided to scientists from around the world by Massachusetts -- through the UMMS Human Stem Cell Bank," said Susan Windham-Bannister, President & CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center. "Stem cell research and regenerative medicine are evolving at a rapid pace and represent key areas of innovation in life sciences. The availability of these stem cell lines to the international research community reinforces Massachusetts' role as a global focal point for life sciences research, will advance the current understanding of a host of debilitating diseases, and move us one step closer to discovering new treatments."

In addition to making these seven lines available, the UMMS Human Stem Cell Bank has entered an agreement to bank a catalog of as many as 80 stem cell lines with limited availability (lines 1-17 have been and are still available to the research community) from the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, a scientific collaborative of stem cell scientists at Harvard University and other institutions. "This agreement allows us access to the stem cell lines developed by members of Harvard's Stem Cell Institute for the purposes of banking and distribution," said
