Come learn from leading scientific researchers about the latest developments and research surrounding Precision Mouse Modeling as it translates to Human Disease. Sponsored by the NIH, ORIP, this information symposium will be held from 1:30pm – 5pm on September 11 at Monsanto Auditorium of the Bond Life Science Center on the University of Missouri-Columbia.
This August during Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month, the NIH is raising a public health campaign to spread awareness of spinal muscular atrophy and the availability of carrier screening. For more information on Spinal Muscular Atrophy, visit the NIH’s official website:

The MMRRC is the nation’s premier national public repository system for mutant mice. Funded by the NIH continuously since 1999, the MMRRC archives and distributes scientifically valuable spontaneous and induced mutant mouse strains and ES cell lines for use by the biomedical research community. The MMRRC consists of a national network of breeding and distribution repositories and an Informatics Coordination and Service Center located at 4 major academic centers across the nation. The MMRRC is committed to upholding the highest standards of experimental design and quality control to optimize the reproducibility of research studies using mutant mice. The MMRRC is supported by the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) in the Office of the Director at NIH. More than 50,000 mutant alleles are maintained as live mice, cryopreserved germplasm, and/or mutant ES cells. Live mice are supplied from a production colony, from a colony recovered from cryopreservation, or via micro-injection of ES cells. An MMRRC facility may offer cryopreserved material for resuscitation at the recipient scientist's institution.
