The main objective of the CorEuStem is to develop an efficient and effective consortium for harmonizing procedures, protocols and tools to provide efficient benchmarking, quality control and intensive training.
One of the major challenges for core facilities is to keep track, evaluate and implement cutting-edge technologies. Core facilities strive to standardize, evaluate, adopt and implement new technologies in the field of hPSCs, organoid biology and gene editing
In the past 12 years, experimental approaches used in biomedical research have been reshaped by the discovery of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), the development of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology and the possibility of generating in vitro organ-like structures called organoids.

Last weekend, on 9-10 September, it took place the first edition of CorEuStem hands-on iPSC training school at Erasmus Medical Center, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The course covered two days of talks and laboratory practice using human iPSC. Students from seven different countries learned how to thaw, split and cryopreserve iPSC, as well as manually...

23 – 24 August 2023 Gene-editors from the CorEuStem network gathered for two days, discussing post-edit quality controls and molecular karyotyping cut-off strategies. The meeting took place at the Lund Stem Cell Centre, thanks to the organising skills of the CAGT team and WG2.
The Standardising Stem Cell Core Facilities in Europe – a CorEuStem Symposium took place at Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal, from 27th to 28th April 2023. The meeting gathered experts from the different core facilities in Europe and covered the latest advances in human stem cells and gene editing technologies. More than 80 participants members attended from CorEuStem COST Action. The two-day...
