The purpose of the NIMH Stem Cell Center is to provide a resource for postnatal-to-
adult human control and patient-derived cells and their reprogrammed derivatives, including induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). This Center supports investigators engaged in stem cell-based research relevant to mental disorders, including but not limited to anxiety disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity
disorder, autism spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and schizophrenia. The capabilities of the Stem Cell Center include derivation, validation, banking and distribution of a wide
variety of cells such as primary source cells from human tissue, iPSCs or similar reprogrammed cells.
