Mouse Transgenic and Gene Targeting Facility

Laboratory Manager

Kirsten Sigrist
(401)863-9544
Kirsten_Sigrist@brown.edu

The function of the Mouse Transgenic and Gene Targeting Facility is to support investigators through generation of transgenic and mutant mice. Our mission is to facilitate access to mouse models of human diseases. The service is a collaborative effort that requires close interaction between an investigator and the facility personnel. While some steps are accomplished by the PI's laboratory, other steps are performed at the Facility.
