During the last decades, cell culture technology has become one of the most important methods required for scientific research. Its enormous potential in several fields including stem cells and regenerative medicine has contributed to relevant scientific advances made in various branches of Biomedical Sciences. In order to facilitate the access of research groups into this technology,
the Cell Culture Department has been established as a central research support unit integrated in the Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Hospital Universitario La Paz (IdiPAZ, Hospital La Paz Institute for Health Research).
This division is aimed to provide effective instrumental, scientific and technical assistance in a centralized and integrated manner as fundamental basis for the proposal and development of research projects in the field of Biomedical and Health Sciences. Located in Hospital La Paz, this unit is provided with an excellent and strategic situation for scientific interaction and cooperation between multidisciplinary clinic and basic research groups.
Mainly, this platform provides users (including external research groups) with facilities as well as specialized personnel to experiment and establish cell cultures from different sources, both primary and established cell lines.
Moreover, in collaboration with facilities provided by IdiPAZ through different platforms and laboratories is also possible to perform other cell-related techniques in order to obtain a detailed study and characterization at the molecular and cellular level.
