CMMC Animal Facility

The CMMC Animal Facility located at the Medical Faculty provides “state of the art” breeding and husbandry of mainly genetically engineered mice for biomedical research. All mouse lines are rederived via embryo transfer to provide the high health status needed for the varying projects.
