Center for Molecular Medicine Cologne


The iPSC-Lab is designed to provide a state-of-the-art infrastructure to researchers willing to work with human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), human embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and human iPSC/ESC-derived organoids. It is not only designed to supply a well-maintained lab space, but it also provides guidance and intellectual support on the “know-how” of working with iPSCs. However, the CMMC iPSC-Lab is explicitly not a core-facility in the sense that we will take care of your cell culture. The idea of the laboratory is to bring researchers in a common place to establish collaborative research programs on iPSCs and organoids.

The iPSC-Lab is open to all research scientists working on the Campus of the University of Cologne. The users need to register to get permission by the CMMC to work in the lab (see “How to get started”), and are required to follow a certain code of conduct (see General lab rules”).
