If you are planning to request transgenic/knockout mice from the OHSU Transgenic Core, you should know that new NIH policy guidelines have triggered an additional institutional checkpoint. Effective immediately, a new form must be completed and submitted to the IBC and the Transgenic Core before animals can be generated. The corresponding policy has been revised based upon NIH requirements, which mandates IBC review for transgenic animal protocols except when purchasing transgenic rodents from outside OHSU or when maintaining a transgenic colony.
See the new form and revised policy here.
