MS Stem

Scientists in a laboratory


MS Stem is a biobank of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines, derived from people living with and without multiple sclerosis. The biobank provides researchers with fully characterised iPSC lines from well phenotyped and genotyped individuals. This provides a unique opportunity to research the pathophysiology of MS in human cell models or conduct preclinical screening of putative therapeutics.

How to collaborate

The iPSCs will be made available (cost-recovery basis) to national and international researchers for the purpose of non-commercial research only.
