A Resource for Stem Cells including iPSCs and Fibroblasts

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is committed to providing well characterized cell sources to both academic and industry investigators to advance the study of neurological disorders.  Cell sources currently include fibroblasts and/or induced pluripotent stem cells for Alzheimer’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Ataxia-telangiectasia, Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTD), Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and healthy controls.  Cell sources, including isogenic cell lines for current and new diseases covered by the NINDS will be added over the next several years.  The NINDS Human Cell and Data Repository (NHCDR) provides new tools for analytics, searching and ordering for all components of the repository.

Please visit the NINDS Catalog Application where you may search the catalog and order biomaterials.

All induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines previously available through the NINDS Repository at Coriell, as well as new iPSC lines recently developed by the NHCDR are now available through the NHCDR catalog.  Fibroblasts previously available through the NINDS Repository at Coriell will be available in May – June, 2016.  Human cell lines being analyzed by the NeuroLINCS data and cell signature generation center (DCSG), one of six DCSGs which are part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) program will be available in 2016.  Feel free to contact us for more information about the NHCDR.
