SCRC Facilities

Procedures requiring
non-federally funded
lab space
  • Derivation of new ESC lines
  • Working with non-approved lines

With the new NIH Stem Cell Guidelines now in place, there is much less of a restriction on working with NIH-approved stem cell lines in a federally-funded research laboratory. However, there are still some procedures that are not allowed in a federally-funded environment.

Since the SCRC was built without federal funds these procedures may be performed in this laboratory. Prior to planning such projects, please contact Dr. Martin Grumet, director of the SCRC. Your project will need approval from the Rutgers-UMDNJ ESCRO committee before work may begin.

2013 New Jersey Stem Cell Symposium

The New Jersey Stem Cell Symposium is held each September at a convenient location in central New Jersey to bring together researchers from academics and industry. The focus is on current stem cell research and novel technologies. Opportunities for New Jersey scientists to present their work will be offered.

The 2013 Symposium will be held at the Bridgewater Marriott on Tuesday, September 24.

NIMH Stem Cell Center

The Rutgers Stem Cell Research Center has partnered with the Rutgers University Cell & DNA Repository (RUCDR) to establish the NIMH Stem Cell Center. This new service of the RUCDR will archive source cells for making iPSC, will make iPSC from cells representing mental health disorders, and distribute both types of cells to NIMH-funded researchers.

Stem Cell Training Course

With support from the New Jersey Commission on Science & Technology, the Rutgers Stem Cell Research Center has hosted several hands-on training courses in stem cell biology. For information on upcoming scheduled courses, please use this link.
