CIRM/QB3 Shared Stem Cell Facility and High Throughput Screening Facility; Mary West Ph.D., Manager

The CIRM/QB3 Shared Stem Cell Facility (SSCF), located in Stanley Hall, provides the cell culture equipment and instrumentation needed to grow and assess stem cells from flow cytometry to automated epifluorescence, confocal, and multiphoton imaging.

The High-Throughput Screening Facility (HTSF), located in the Li Ka Shing Center, provides automated liquid handling, automated plate reader and high-throughput, high-content microscopy instrumentation for screening experiments, along with tools for analysis and data visualization.For more information, see:

The Siebel Stem Cell Institute

A UC Berkeley-Stanford Consortium


The Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation established the Siebel Stem Cell Institute to catalyze and facilitate pioneering stem cell research collaborations between groups at UC Berkeley and Stanford, and visiting scholars in residence.
Siebel Visiting Scholars
The Siebel Institute seeks to advance stem cell research by supporting outstanding visiting scholars from international or United States institutions, to be in residence at UC Berkeley laboratories. Candidate nominations from Stem Cell Center affiliates are welcome.
