The NEW Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center (MMPC) at Michigan, one of six centers part of the national MMPC consortium, was awarded 5.6M over the next five years, by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to help support and advance biological research using mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related metabolic diseases and conditions.

Comprised of four fee-for-service core laboratires, (Animal Care and Germ Free Mouse Core; Metabolism, Bariatric Surgery and Behavior Core; Microvascular Complications Core and Microbiome Core), the Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center at Michigan aims to:

  1. Provide academic and non-academic researchers, internally and nationwide, access to a broad range of comprehensive, state of the art, specialized phenotyping services; including unique expertise in bariatric surgery models, diabetic microvascular complications and functional interactions of the microbiome at a  reasonable cost.

  2. Contribute to a national database of metabolic phenotyping data in wild-type mouse strains and a broad range of mouse models relevant to the pathogenesis and treatment of diabetes, obesity and associated metabolic disorders.

  3. Foster continued technical development, refinement of assay sensitivity and specificity, data reproducibility, and transmission of best research practices within the areas of fundamental and applied diabetes and obesity research.
