 March 21, 2017
Need a new rat model?  The RRRC in conjunction with the MU Animal Modeling Core (AMC) can assist with the generation of transgenic rats, create knock-out and knock-in rats using CRISPR/Cas9 technology and genetically manipulate rat embryonic stem cells to make chimeric animals.  Contact us to discuss your rat model needs and how we can help.

The RRRC offers one-on-one consultation for biomedical researchers who need assistance with all aspects of the development, acquisition, maintenance, and characterization of rat models. We have extensive scientific expertise in the areas of genetics, reproduction, breeding, colony management, health monitoring, cryopreservation, cryorecovery, and phenotyping.  To request a consultation with our experts, email us at with your contact information and a brief summary of the nature of your project and model.
