Strategies for Germ-line Modification in the Rat
The National Center for Research Resources, National Cancer Institute,
National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Institute of Child Health
and Human Development, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and
Stroke, National Institute on Aging, and National Institute on Drug Abuse,
invite applications for the purpose of establishing methods for the efficient
production of rat models that contain germ-line mutations that will
facilitate the transfer of biological concepts to human health problems.
Development of rat embryonic stem cell (ESC) technology by modification of current techniques or development of new approaches will meet the needs of researchers using the rat to study human health and disease. This initiative is designed for rat models only and should not include human subjects or tissues.
