About Us

Organization and Objectives

The Centre for Phenogenomics (TCP, formerly "Toronto Centre for Phenogenomics") is owned and operated by Mount Sinai Hospital and The Hospital for Sick Children as a centralized, state-of-the-art national research facility. Since 2007, TCP has provided animal holding, model production, clinical phenotyping, imaging, pathology, and cryopreservation and recovery services to users locally, across Canada and around the world.

What We Do

The strength of TCP is our collective expertise and unique ability to design, generate, hold, analyze, archive, and distribute a critical mass of mouse models under one roof. We provide:

  • Custom services for the generation of genetically engineered mouse models
  • Mouse holding and technical services for preclinical in vivo research projects
  • Comprehensive or disease-specific phenotyping and pathology services for research, and drug discovery and evaluation
  • Biorepository services to archive, acquire, and distribute mouse models

Research and Ethics

TCP is committed to the highest standards of animal ethics and care in science.  All studies meet the requirements of the provincial legislation and regulations of the Animals for Research Act as well as the national guidelines and policies of the  Canadian Council on Animal Care and are approved by TCP Animal Care Committee.
