Experimental Mouse Shared Service

The Experimental Mouse Shared Service (EMSS) has provided expertise to The University of Arizona Cancer Center and outside investigators since 1993. The EMSS offers a continuum of services, from initial consultation and in vivo experimental design, to GEM Production, through Mouse Experimentation and data analysis. This enables the investigator to generate and use mouse models of human cancer to their fullest potential, utilizing the Service’s extensive knowledge and expertise at competitive pricing. The EMSS helps to develop cancer therapies that are efficient, cost effective, and clinically relevant.

The Mouse Experimentation unit is located in The University of Arizona Cancer Center and is led by Natalia Ignatenko, PhD.

The GEM Production unit is located in the Bio5 Institute and is led by
Tom Doetschman, PhD.

The GEM Production unit can help you create your mouse model and the Mouse Experimentation unit can help you realize its full potential.


The EMSS is GLP certified since 2012.
