Founded in September 2000, Shanghai Model Organisms Center, Inc. (SMOC) specializes in model organisms and is dedicated to gene editing and life decoding.

We provide customized solutions such as genetically engineered animal models, phenotype analysis and high-throughput screenings to advance life science research and drug discovery. SMOC owns a rapidly-growing repository of Research-Ready models , including immunodeficient and humanized mouse models to advance R&D for cancer immunotherapy.

Our breeding facility is equipped with 60,000 specific pathogen-free (SPF) cages which can hold up to 300,000 rodents. Health and safety procedures for animal handling are strictly complied. Animal welfare is highly prioritized by SMOC and which has earned us the AAALAC accreditation.
