4th Annual PCTC Meeting, September 22 - 23, 2020

4th Annual PCTC Meeting

The 4th Annual NHLBI Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium (PCTC) Meeting will be held in Philadelphia, PA (Tuesday, September 22, 2020 and Wednesday, September 23, 2020). 
 

Training Opportunity: Stem Cell Research Fundamentals at Stanford University

Course Information

NEW DATES: FEBRUARY  2020

Application Guidelines

This training is intended for trainees but is open to applications from any graduate student, post-doctoral fellow or faculty member recommended by a PCTC Research Hub.

Three documents are requested for applications:

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

NHLBI Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium – Clinical Translation Studies

NHLBI Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium – Clinical Translation Studies

Background

The goal of the NHLBI Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium (PCTC) is to translate advances in progenitor cell biology towards application to heart, lung, and blood diseases. The initiative will focus on the use of progenitor cell-based disease models to understand disease mechanisms and to develop novel therapies, and the application of progenitor cell-based therapies for the treatment of heart, lung, and blood diseases.

PCTC Visiting Scholar Award Program - Request for Proposals

PCTC Visiting Scholar Funding Opportunities

This Request for Proposals provides funding for PCTC Visiting Scholar Awards up to $25,000 for collaboration and exchange of expertise among PCTC Research Hubs.

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.
