The Institute has unique stem cell material, including 1,000+ human cell lines generated from clinical samples and postmortem human brains.

1,000+ Human Cell Lines

Among the Institute’s stem cell material are human cell lines from close to 500 people who were extensively studied throughout life. This includes detailed characterization of educational and social development, as well as measures of brain function, including cognition, imaging and temperament. The collection also features cell lines from over 500 individuals whose brains are also in the Institute’s human brain repository. This is a one-of-a-kind resource in critical biological material that has substantial potential to leverage partnerships with and investment in the Institute.
