3rd Annual PCTC Meeting, September 23 - 24, 2019

3rd Annual PCTC Meeting

The 3rd Annual NHLBI Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium (PCTC) Meeting will be held in Boston, MA (Monday, September 23, 2019 and Tuesday, September 24, 2019). Online registration opens until Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC) Stem Cell Collection Available Through WiCell

The Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) performed comprehensive experimental and genomic analyses of iPSC and hESC lines from different laboratories derived using a variety of reprogramming methods.  Culture systems for the cell lines were harmonized. Resulting data are publicly available through Synapse.

PCTC “Jump-Start” Awards

PCTC Jump Start Award Program

Purpose:

To provide the PCTC with a mechanism to quickly award small grants to junior faculty (less than 5 years from their appointment to Assistant Professor), Research Associates, Graduate Students, Fellows and Postdocs to support a well-defined specific aim. The aim should involve at least one of the following, with priority given to proposals that incorporate two:

1.     The application of new technology to an existing translational research question
