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).


RRRC News & Events COVID-19-related Disruptions

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we are operating with reduced staffing and there may be delays in responding to emails and phone calls at this time.  In addition, because of institutional restrictions and uncertainty with courier services and transportation, the RRRC is currently shipping and receiving live animals on a case-by-case basis.  For new requests, please contact us to discuss your needs.  For ongoing orders, we will continue to communicate frequently to keep you apprised of the status of your order.  Thank you for understanding.
