Stem Cell & Xenograft Core
The Stem Cell and Xenograft Core (SCXC) was established at the Perlman School of Medicine Core in the second quarter of 2008. The mission of the Core is to provide Penn investigators with a high-quality, cost-effective, and comprehensive resource to promote basic and translational research in the areas of cancer biology, immunotherapy, stem cell biology, and regenerative medicine. Our resource laboratory integrates a large tissue bank containing viable human specimens with extensive xenotransplantation services to support basic research and promote the rapid development of clinically relevant models. This service center remains unique amongst peer institutions with regards to the scope of users research ranging from immunotherapy to regenerative medicine, its scale, and its range of services.
