The Case Transgenic & Targeting Facility performs services for researchers within the region and drives innovative gene-directed therapies.

The Case Transgenic & Targeting Facility is a member of the FIND (Focus on INherited Disease) Pipeline. The FIND Pipeline consists of cores and labs working to translate gene-directed approaches into therapeutics for a variety of genetic disease. We also are a member of the Cystic Fibrosis Mouse Resource Center at CWRU where we have made a wide range of cystic fibrosis models for basic research and to translate small molecule and gene-directed approaches into therapies. We have been a shared resource of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at CWRU and the Cleveland Clinic since 2007.

The Case Transgenic & Targeting Facility has been in continuous operation for over 20 years. We have broad financial support from the CWRU School of Medicine, from the CWRU Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative, from the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Research Institute for Children’s Health, and direct grant support to the core from the NIH, JobsOhio, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
