Access to Scientific Resources

Biomedical Technology Resource Centers Back to Top
Provide qualified investigators with the newest and most advanced technologies and techniques created, developed, and disseminated by the core scientists at the centers.
General Clinical Research Centers Back to Top
Offer qualified clinical investigators specialized environments with the infrastructure necessary to conduct sophisticated patient-oriented research.
National Gene Vector Laboratories Back to Top
Serve as a resource for qualified researchers to obtain adequate quantities of clinical-grade vectors for human gene transfer protocols.
Human Tissues and Organs Resource Back to Top
Provides a wide variety of human tissues and organs - both diseased and normal - to qualified researchers for laboratory studies.
Human Islet Cell Resource Centers Back to Top
Isolate and distributes pancreatic islets to clinical investigators for transplantation into type 1 diabetic patients enrolled in approved clinical protocols.
Nonhuman Primates Resources Back to Top
Offer qualified biomedical researchers access to nonhuman primates. Also provide nonhuman primate cells, tissues, organs, and biological fluids.
Rodent Resources Back to Top
Distribute high-quality, well-characterized inbred, hybrid, and mutant rodents to qualified investigators. Also provides frozen embryos and sperm from genetically defined strains of laboratory mice and rats, as well as other rodent resources.
Fish Resources Back to Top
Provides a central repository for fish, materials, and services to the biomedical research community.
Invertebrate Models and Stocks Back to Top
Models and stocks provided to qualified investigators: Drosophila; Caenorhabditis elegans; Aplysia californica; cephalopod mollusks; and macroarrays containing genomic and cDNA libraries from the sea urchin.
Biological Materials Back to Top
Available to qualified investigators: microbes, cell cultures and DNA materials of more than 6,000 species and 1,500 genera; large-scale cell culture services for basic research; nonhuman embryonic stem cells; and genetically marked S. cerevisiae stocks.
Comparative Medicine Information Sources Back to Top
Available to qualified investigators: database describing E. coli genes and all known enzymes and pathways of E. coli metablism; atlas of C. elegans anatomy; guidelines; on laboratory animal care and use; publications on nonhuman primates; clearinghouse on nonhuman primate research; resources on issues related to laboratory animal care and welfare.
Genetic and Genomic Resources Back to Top
Provided to qualified investigators: trait analysis of novel mouse inbred strains; genetic marker analysis of nonhuman primates; and referral for animal models of human genetic disease.
