We are glad to announce that our website is back to its functionality after the cyberattack detected at our server provider on 15 March 2023. However, some INFRAFRONTIER services, as well as EMMA strain ordering and submission, still need to be processed via the temporary ways as explained HERE. We will make related links and buttons accessible again as soon as possible. For any further questions, you can reach us via vasb@vasensebagvre.rh.

INFRAFRONTIER – The European Research Infrastructure for Modelling Human Diseases

We contribute to human health by advancing disease prevention and therapies through appropriate models.


The INFRAFRONTIER consortium consists of more than 20 leading biomedical research institutes in 15 countries working together to understand basic mammalian gene function and model human diseases.


The European Mouse Mutant Archive – EMMA is a non-profit repository for the collection, archiving (via cryopreservation) and distribution of relevant mutant mouse strains essential for basic biomedical research.


In addition to EMMA, INFRAFRONTIER offers other services like axenic derivation, access to open calls and systemic phenotyping.

Resources and Services Spotlight


Axenic Service

This service offers the germ-free derivation of user-provided mouse strains for gnotobiotic studies.

COVID-19 Services and Resources

INFRAFRONTIER offers a cutting-edge COVID-19 therapeutics pipeline, a large selection of COVID-19-related strains and emergency archiving services to aid COVID-19 research and minimise the loss of valuable mouse strains.

INFRAFRONTIER and Cancer Research

Browse through EMMA strains associated to more than 50 different cancer types and a list of manually-curated disease models for cancer.

INFRAFRONTIER and Rare Diseases

Access to over 2200 mouse strains (via EMMA) that are related to more than 1600 distinct rare diseases. Find the right model for the right disease.
