About Us

The primary function of the RRRC is to supply biomedical investigators with the rat models, embryonic stem cells, related reagents, protocols and specialized services they require for their research. 

The RRRC provides a unique repository service to the biomedical community by importing, storing and distributing a vast number of rat strains; as well as performing research that improves the function of the Resource Center. 

In addition to repository, cryostorage and distribution functions, the RRRC can facilitate acquisition of rat strains from other international repositories as well as provide specialized services, consultation and technical training to investigators using rat models.
