MRC National Mouse Genetics Network
A package of distinctive research clusters spread across the UK drawing from the specialist facilities and capabilities of the Mary Lyon Centre to accelerate our understanding of human disease.
The Network will consist of multiple disease-focused clusters pursuing distinctive, but complementary, challenge-led research and the Mary Lyon Centre at MRC Harwell acting as a central hub generating and robustly phenotyping strains, performing pre-clinical trials, and providing training. Key within these clusters will be both experts in developing mouse genetic models, and translational and clinical scientists to provide a clear path to clinical translation. Furthermore, the clusters will interact with each other to capitalise on the numerous opportunities there will be for cross-disease learning.
You can find out more about the Network on the National Mouse Genetics Network website.
