iPSC Culture Protocol Videos

Watch our iPSC culture protocol videos to learn how to culture iPSCs and iPSC-derived neural cells.

English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish videos are available now, with more languages coming soon!


In this video, we will go over the protocol to thaw induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs) in French.

Watch the English version here.

Funding from Tanenbaum Open Science Institute (TOSI) at The Neuro helped make this video possible.

How to Access iPSCs

At the EDDU we have a catalogue of iPSC lines from healthy individuals and from patients with neurological disorders that can be freely accessed for a small fee. Our cells are for experimental use only.

To access the cells, please contact cbig.mni [at] (C-BIG). Click here for further instructions on accessing cells.

To learn more about how the cells are made or for general inquiries, contact us at neuroeddu.mni [at]

iPSC Catalogue last updated: November 2022
