The Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository (VCMR) contains genetically-modified mice that have been either generated or modified in some manner by Vanderbilt investigators and are available to anyone for rederivation.

View the VCMR Collection

Investigators interested in donating a strain to the VCMR should complete the VCMR strain information and release form and return it to vcmr@vanderbilt.edu.

The following factors will be considered prior to accepting strains into the VCMR.

  • Is the strain of ongoing value to other researchers?
  • Is the strain available at another mouse repository? Exceptions for unique strain backgrounds may be considered.
  • Is the strain published and well documented?
  • If the strain is unpublished, is there sufficient documentation and evidence that it functions as desired?

Benefits of the Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository:

  • Facilitates compliance with NIH sharing policy
  • Online resource of cryopreserved germplasm at Vanderbilt
  • Shipment of mice to an outside repository is not necessary
