About us

Organization and Objectives

The core is a part of The Centre for Phenogenomics (TCP) Platform funded by Genome Canada. Overall, the TCP is programmed to design, produce, manage, quality control, analyze and distribute mouse models, as well as to enable pre-clinical research for therapeutic discovery.

The Infection & Inflammation Phenotyping core part of The Centre for Phenogenomics is located in the Bellini building of the Life Sciences Complex at McGill University. We provide standardized functional and outcome analysis of the host response to in vivo challenges with several immunogens and pathogens, to clients across Canada. 

Research and Ethics

All mouse experiments abide by the guidelines of the Canadian Council on Animal Care and are approved by the McGill University Animal Care Committee. We provide support to researchers to comply with ‘ARRIVE’ guidelines to improve design and reporting of animal research studies.
