MRC Harwell is at the international forefront of the use of mouse genetics to study the relationship between genes and disease. The models we create and study are used to understand the disease processes that occur when a gene goes wrong.

MRC Harwell consists of the Mammalian Genetics Unit, a major international research centre and the Mary Lyon Centre, a world class purpose-built mouse facility. Our areas of research include deafness, neurobehavioural genetics, and the genetics of type 2 Diabetes. We are also the data coordination centre for the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium, a major global effort to characterise the function of every gene in the mouse genome.
