The National Mouse Genetics Network will bring together a package of distinctive research clusters across the UK


The Network, led by National Director Professor Owen Sansom, will capitalise on the UK’s international excellence in mouse and human genetics, and the wider biomedical sciences.

The Network consists 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 are both experts in developing mouse genetic models, and translational and clinical scientists to provide a clear path to clinical translation. Furthermore, the clusters interact with each other to capitalise on the numerous opportunities there will be for cross-disease learning.
