Report of the NIH Rat Model Repository Workshop

On behalf of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) convened this workshop to develop a plan for a Rat Model Repository. The workshop was designed to plan what is needed by the research community, to recommend how to set up such a repository, to identify the most able group to establish this resource, and to decide how to assess and solve the problem of genetic heterogeneity among members of rat strains.

This workshop was structured to enable as much work as possible to be done in advance of the meeting (including the use of a Web site that provided a forum for posting predefined questions and the answers developed by participants) and was designed to promote maximal interaction for the development of implementable recommendations through the Breakout Groups and Plenary Sessions. The report developed by this workshop will be used to guide the NIH in this most important endeavor.
