Providing Stem Cell & Molecular Biology Services to Investigators

The CTRC Core provides stem cell and molecular biology services to investigators at the University of Utah. Our mission is to deliver first-class service, up-to-date information and technical expertise, featuring induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) generation and automated nucleic acid isolation, for increased speed, efficiency, and reproducibility.

Due to rapid advances in genomics, we are constantly looking for new opportunities to expand services, to encourage collaborations, and to interface with other University of Utah Cores.

We are committed to providing the highest level of quality control and customer support, while keeping costs as low as possible for investigators.
