Trans-NIH Mouse Initiative


The Centre for Modeling Human Disease (CMHD)

CMHD is a major collaborative effort of investigators from several research institutions in the greater Toronto, Canada area. The goal of CHMD is to produce new mouse models of human development and clinical disorders. By combining the power of mouse mutagenesis with comprehensive phenotypic screens, a valuable resource is being developed to address many developmental and clinical disorders, such as diabetes, hematology, bone mineralization, cardiovascular and renal functions, behaviour, learning and memory, and embryonic development.
