srp spotlights: why we love it here

 “We conduct cutting edge research using the latest equipment and technologies.”

Project Leader

Everything is close. We walk downstairs to get to the mouse facilities. 


– Alex

Really like the new facilities, everything is well spaced out. Like going to Coupa Cafe. Like the community aspect of the park.

– Pedro Cuevas

Life Science Research Professional

“Eight minutes to get from anywhere to anywhere here in the park just as on campus, not losing the most valuable asset – time. Collaborators are just around the corners, as more people move in, more collaborations will happen. Parking is free, a big deal, easy to get to and off 280 freeway.”


– Patrick Lee Purdon, Phd

Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine

 “Studying weigh loss by looking at fat cell size of patient samples before and after intervention”

Situated in Stanford Research Park (SRP), the Joseph C. Wu Lab studies how to make a type of stem cell called “induced pluripotent stem cells” (iPSCs).

These cells can be transformed into almost any cell type in the body, offering opportunities for disease modeling, drug discovery, & personalized medicine.

Here, Gabriela Canel Rivero, an assistant clinical research coordinator at Wu Lab, walks us through the process.
