The TGFC will provide CTEHR investigators with streamlined and cost effective access to a program that will support the generation of genetically engineered (and validated) model systems for environmental health sciences research. By making available the expertise necessary to develop these models, by applying economies of scale to their production and validation and by leveraging the resources already available within the participating institutions, the TGFC serves as a resource to all the thematic components of the CTEHR.

The goal of the Targeted Genomics Facilities Core is to make available to CTEHR investigators sophisticated model systems, genetically engineered mice and genetically modified human cell lines, that can be used by to test the novel concepts generated by the rich repertoire of research technologies available through the CTEHR Cores Program.
