Peromyscus Genetic Stock Center

Our Services

Animals and tissues

We provide to outside investigators animals, tissues and biological material from all species we maintain. A minimal charge is incurred for all orders to sustain the center’s function.

Protocol development

We collaborate with outside investigators to develop protocols in order to satisfy their specific needs. Those include administration of special diets and dietary supplements, set up for timed pregnancies for embryo harvesting and others.


Histopathological evaluation of rodent tissues, including those from PGSC animals can be provided by Ioulia Chatzistamou, Clinical Associate Professor of Pathology, Microbiology & Immunology.

Future Research

Ongoing efforts to investigate the use of Peromyscus in new areas, such as infectious diseases, oncology and pharmacology are underway at the University of South Carolina. Investigators who have an interest in working with us to uncover new areas of research in which Peromyscus may be of value should contact Hippokratis Kiaris.
