American Family Children's Hospital

The Transgenic and Mutant Animal Facility makes transgenic technology accessible and affordable to the members of the UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC). It uses the personnel, facilities and equipment of the campus-wide University of Wisconsin Biotechnology Center's Transgenic Animal Facility.


Transgenic and genetically-engineered mutant animals provide one of the most valuable mechanisms for generating in vivo models for unraveling the molecular and genetic mechanisms of cancer and for evaluating new strategies for treatment and prevention studies. Efficient generation of transgenic animals requires great technical skill that is acquired only after extensive experience with animal husbandry and breeding, animal surgery, embryo manipulation and micromanipulation.

Any published research which received funding from the UWCCC Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG), including the use of UWCCC Shared Resources to generate or analyze data or conduct clinical trials, must reference the UWCCC. See Acknowledging UWCCC in Publications, Posters and Presentations.
