Genetic manipulation of the mouse genome is essential for understanding gene function and for discovering the genetic and molecular basis of human disease. Thus, efficient use of genetically modified mouse models can enhance the potential for the development of targeted therapeutics and effective prevention strategies.
Antibodies provide powerful tools for research and diagnostic purposes. Antibodies are both highly sensitive and highly specific for particular epitopes, which makes them ideal reagents for detecting and quantifying a broad array of targets, from drugs to serum proteins to microorganisms.
Clinical Drug Pipeline
These drugs were created by faculty at the University of Michigan. There are many in different stages with several already in the market.
These medical devices were created to help improve medical care and everyday life. We’re tracking their progress as they make their way to the patient.
How we diagnose disease and conditions evolves as technology evolves. A number of the tests and tools used in healthcare today have been created here at the University of Michigan.
Material Transfer Agreement – Outgoing
Outgoing Material Transfer Agreements (MTA) govern the transfer of material from U-M to another organization.
If you are a U-M researcher interested in sending materials to an outside country, please contact MichiganMTA@umich.edu
Material Transfer Agreement – Incoming
Incoming Material Transfer Agreements (MTA) govern the transfer of material from outside entities to U-M.
If you are an outside entity interested in sending material to a researcher at U-M, please contact MichiganMTA@umich.edu and provide information about the materials and the recipient.
Innovative research devices can be a great help in discovering phenomena that cannot be discovered with existing equipment. Such devices can contribute a great deal to the power and practical value of new technologies.
Tool Compounds are small molecular weight compounds of known structure from the literature acting as agonists, activators, antagonists and inhibitors. Tool compounds are often use in drug discovery for target validation.
