The Wistar Institute collaborates with the Coriell Institute to distribute cell lines
Date:3/25/2008

(PHILADELPHIA) Cell lines developed by scientists at The Wistar Institute in Philadelphia have recently been made available to researchers around the globe through the catalog collection at the Coriell Institute for Medical Research of Camden, N.J.

The collaboration means that scientists at a variety of research organizations can access biological materials developed at Wistar for use in the development of vaccines and treatments for cancer and other deadly diseases.

We are pleased to make these valuable materials widely available to the research community through the Coriell Biobank, said Russel E. Kaufman, M.D., president and CEO of Wistar. This collaboration with Coriell, who is a leader in the storage and distribution of biological materials, means that some of the key tools used in the potentially lifesaving work of Wistar scientists will be made available worldwide.

The initial Wistar collection to be distributed by Coriell includes hybridoma cell lines that produce monoclonal antibodies that measure peoples exposure to influenza viruses and response to vaccines. These cell lines were developed over the course of 30 years by renowned influenza researcher Walter Gerhard, M.D., who retired from Wistar in 2007. The monoclonal antibodies produced by these cell lines are useful in the development of vaccines against a variety of influenza strains, including pandemic influenza, Kaufman said.

Wistar and Coriell also are working to add melanoma cell lines developed in the laboratory of Wistar researcher Meenhard Herlyn, D.V.M., D.Sc., to the Wistar collection at Coriell. Cell lines amassed by Herlyn represent one of the most comprehensive melanoma cell line collections in the world, Kaufman said, and may be useful in developing drugs to treat melanoma and other cancers.

Coriell is pleased to partner with The Wistar Institute and bring together the knowledge, talents and vision of two established institutions that are
