This shared resource of the Koch Institute provides fee-for-service support to all MIT investigators who utilize cultured ES cells or novel mouse models to study human diseases such as cancer. Access is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity. Priority access is given to KI members, NCI-funded research projects and other contributing user groups in recognition of funding support. In special circumstances, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from the Mouse Models Consultant, Aurora Burds Connor).
We provide a customizable set of service options to match the specific needs of each project, including consultative advice and troubleshooting, complete tissue culture and microinjection servces within our dedicated facilities or hands-on training to enable investigators to perfom these experiments either at their own laboratory or within our facilities.
Services are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis after approval.
The ES Cell & Transgenics Core is supported in part by funding provided to the Koch Institute from a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant. We are thankful for the support that has been provided by a grant from the National Institutes of Health to the Cell Migration Consortium.
