Our overall goal is to provide a center for accepting and distributing high quality, well characterized inbred, hybrid and mutant rats to investigators. To this end, the RRRC will select and import rat strains and stocks important to the biomedical research community; rederive rats to a pathogen-free state; cryopreserve gametes and embryos; perform genotyping; and infectious disease monitoring to assure the quality of the rats, and distribute live rats, cryopreserved germplasm or tissues to investigators.  In addition, the RRRC performs a wide variety of fee-for-services designed to facilitate all aspects of rat-related research.

The RRRC is located at the University of Missouri's Discovery Ridge Research Park and is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (P40 OD011062).
