Investigators interested in donating a strain to the VCMR should complete the VCMR submission and release forms 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  • If the strain is unpublished, is there sufficient documentation and evidence that it functions as desired?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
