The Center for Precision Medicine Models at Baylor College of Medicine aids researchers, clinicians, genetic counselors, patients, and support organizations in the development and study of precision animal models of human-disease-associated genetic variation.
About the Center
The Baylor CPMM brings together internationally recognized leaders in clinical genetics, bioinformatics, and model organism research. Our goal is to develop precision animal models that will end the diagnostic odyssey of patients with undiagnosed genetic diseases and serve as resources for exploring personalized approaches to their care.
Our center focuses on producing and phenotyping precision fly and mouse models of human disease and can facilitate the discovery of spontaneous disease models in established rhesus macaque colonies. Visit cores for more details on the center’s capabilities.
The Center for Precision Medicine Models at Baylor College of Medicine (U54 OD030165) is funded by the NIH Office of Research Infrastructure Programs through the Office of the Director. Efforts at Baylor are complemented by funded centers at The Jackson Laboratory and University of Alabama Birmingham.
