The Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Initiative (HipSci) brings together clinical genetics with genomics, proteomics and cell biology to create a UK national iPS cell resource to carry out cellular genetic studies.

Within this framework, the HipSci Cell Phenotyping group at King's College London is developing assays to image cells in artificial microenvironments to study responses to chemical, physical, biological stimuli and develop disease models.

The group offers the use of its state-of-the art imaging equipment to trained external users. We are available for training and advice and to discuss the possibility of collaborating on specific projects of mutual interest.

For information, please contact Dr Davide Danovi.
