Research

The Transgenic Core Facility, Mouse Cancer Genetics Program (MCGP), provides state-of-the-art technical microinjection services to design, construct, and maintain genetically engineered mouse models (GEMM). Our staff members provide dedicated support to MCGP investigators and their collaborators by producing transgenic mice for use in a variety of ongoing research studies. An integral part of the MCGP team, the Facility is focused on advancing the goals and objectives of MCGP's research program. One important goal is the creation of mouse models of human diseases. Other services provided to the MCGP investigators include In-vitro fertilization, various surgical procedures, line maintenance, assistance with animal shipments and training.
