National Institute on Aging

Sponsored by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the AGING CELL REPOSITORY, is a resource facilitating cellular and molecular research studies on the mechanisms of aging and the degenerative processes associated with it. The cells in this resource have been collected over the past three decades using strict diagnostic criteria and banked under the highest quality standards of cell culture. Scientists use the highly-characterized, viable, and contaminant-free cell cultures from this collection for research on such diseases as Alzheimer disease, progeria, Parkinsonism, Werner syndrome, and Cockayne syndrome.

    New IPSC Lines Added to National Institute on Aging’s Aging Cell Repository

    Two new lines of induced pluripotent stem cells are now available to researchers through the National Institute on Aging’s Aging Cell Repository, housed and distributed by the Coriell Institute for Medical Research. The addition of these two lines brings the total number of highly-characterized iPSC lines offered through this collection to five.
