Applying Mouse Biology to Reveal New Insights into Mechanisms of Metabolic Disease

The mission of the Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center at UC Davis (MMPC@UCDavis) is to advance medical and biological research by providing the scientific community with standardized, high quality metabolic and physiologic phenotyping tests, services, and procedures for mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related disorders.Through its affiliation with the UC Davis Mouse Biology Program, the MMPC@UCDavis has available thousands of mutant mouse models available for research. If a particular mutant mouse model is not available from our repositories, the Mouse Biology Program can generate one de novo and enroll it for metabolic phenotyping in the MMPC@UC Davis.

Our Goals:

  • Broaden the scope of metabolic phenotyping tests for mice available to investigators.
  • Standardize key methodologies.
  • Expedite the completion of research.
  • Compile a database of information relevant to mouse models of diabetes, obesity, and diabetic complication
