Awarded Project: "Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Center at UCD"

Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Center at UCD

Dr. K.C. Kent Lloyd was awarded a five year renewal of the Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Center at UCD (MMRRC) from the Office of the Director, NIH.  The Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Center (MMRRC) National Consortium serves a primary role in ensuring that valuable mouse  models of human disease, development, and behavioral abnormalities created in research laboratories are shared broadly among the biomedical scientific community. As one of 4 regional repositories and  distribution centers in the Consortium, the MMRRC-UCD provides expertise, infrastructure, resources and services to preserve mouse strains in perpetuity, protect them from catastrophic loss, avoid genetic and phenotypic drift, and prevent pathogenic contamination and disease. By enabling availability and access of such valuable mouse models to the entire research community, the MMRRC-UCD fosters and promotes the discovery of new diagnostics, treatments, and prevention strategies against human diseases.
