Become a member of the consortium

There are different types of membership in the consortium. The different requirements per type are listed below.

Institutional Membership

A track record of experience in high throughput phenotyping and/or large-scale knockout mouse production, allied to the physical resources to undertake such activities, or expertise in specialised (“Secondary level”) phenotyping that would add value to the resource and database.

For phenotyping centres, a commitment to phenotype at least 50 lines per year, preferably rising to 100 lines per year within the lifetime of Phase I of the IMPC programme.

For production centres, a commitment to generate at least 50 lines per year, with the ability to distribute live mice, embryos, and sperm, preferably rising to 100 lines per year within the lifetime of Phase I of the IMPC programme. For Secondary level phenotyping groups, a commitment to share data with the IMPC as a whole, and deposit the data into the IMPC Database in a timely fashion.

Agreement to work within the framework of the consortium, including commonly agreed phenotyping pipelines and IT structures. Demonstrable ability to provide the IT infrastructure for the local capture of production and/or phenotyping data and its upload to the IMPC data coordination centre(s).

Agreement to the full release of data to data coordination centres according to IMPC agreed procedures and timelines.

Agreement of production centres to provide the community access to live mice, embryos and sperm as soon as possible without intended hold backs, subject to legal or MTA restrictions.

Funders’ Membership

To commit to ensure their best endeavours to provide funding support to the IMPC programme commensurate with their institutions providing the requisite commitments to participation in the programme.

To work to facilitate smooth and harmonious integration of the research networks recommendations and guidelines.

To work to help communicate the goals and milestones of the IMPC to the wider scientific community.

Membership Fee

The membership fee is currently £50,000 GBP.

The fee may be paid, in full or in part, with in-kind contributions, or adjusted in the future subject to approval of 75% of the Steering Committee.

The membership fee shall be collected by the IMPC Administering Member and will require a separate letter of agreement to facilitate the process.
