How We Generate Our Data

  • Targeting genes that haven’t been studied yet
  • Standardised production methods to knock out genes
  • Mutants and wildtype mice tested under the same phenotyping protocols

Understanding Our Data

  • We generate our own data, it is not aggregated from publications
  • A constantly growing dataset; mice continually tested
  • Data from 19 IMPC phenotyping centres, in 11 countries

Animal Welfare

The IMPC collects data from member institutes who collect phenotyping data guided by their own ethical review panels, licenses, and accrediting bodies that reflect the national and/or geo-political constructs in which they operate.

Horizon 2020 - Opportunities to Partner With The IMPC

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever. Funding opportunities under Horizon 2020 are set out in multi-annual work programmes – and the IMPC is currently looking for partners with which to submit funding applications under Societal Challenge 1 – Health, demographic change and wellbeing.
