Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche

"A. Buzzati-Traverso" Campus, Monterotondo

The co-ordinating Institution of the EMMA Core Structure




The Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR; Italian National Research Council) has established and coordinates the Core Structure of the EMMA (European Mouse Mutant Archive) Network Infrastructure and the new Mouse Clinic facility, at the "A. Buzzati-Traverso" Internazional Campus in Monterotondo (Rome, Italy).

The EMMA network ensures the cryo-preservation, pathogen-free rederivation and world-wide distribution of more than 500 new mutant strains per year (more than 6000 strains are currently available), as new, in vivo models of human genetic and multifactorial diseases.
The EMMA core structure and the Mouse Clinic at Monterotondo participate in the related International Consortia and are key components of the INFRAFRONTIER research infrastructure, which has been selected by the European Roadmap for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI), as a crucial distributed infrastructure for the current and future development of the European biomedical research (Mattaj and Tocchini-Valentini, Nature, vol.447, 377-378,2007). EMMA and INFRAFRONTIER have been and are financially supported by specific Research Infrastructures grants of European Union's Framework Programmes 4-7 and Horizon2020.
INFRAFRONTIER is specifically organizing two complementary and integrated networks (ARCHIVEFRONTIER and PHENOMEFRONTIER) for large-scale and comprehensive production, primary phenotyping, archiving and dissemination of innovative mouse models, serving the European genetics and biomedical research community for the benefit of human health. It has also been identified as an highest-priority project in the Italian Roadmap for Pan-European Research Infrastructures and in related national roadmaps.

The Monterotondo Mouse Clinic project is integrated with INFRAFRONTIER's main mission on systemic phenotyping, in the context of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) global initiative, which Italy has joined in 2013.
The EMMA core structure and the Mouse Clinic are also integrated with the other international Institutions at the Monterotondo Campus.

The INFRAFRONTIER-EMMA infrastructure is selectively supported by CNR, as detailed in its Activity Plan 2016-2018 (in Italian).

CNR organizes the annual Monterotondo Workshop and Practical Course on Cryopreservation of Mouse Germplasm, in collaboration with the Jackson Laboratory and financial support by European Union's Framework Programmes. It also participates in the organization of the Theoretical Courses "Mouse Genetics: Models for Human Diseases" and "RNA structure and Function", at the ICGEB, Trieste. It collaborates with the EMBL-European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences (ELLS) in organizing training courses for secondary school teachers and students.


Prof. Glauco Tocchini-Valentini is the co-ordinator of the EMMA grants, under the specific initiatives for Research Infrastructures of the European Union Framework Programmes 4-7. He has lead the creation and development of EMMA, since its establishment by CNR in 1996, in collaboration with the most important European Institutions for biomedical research and financial support by the European Union's Framework Programmes.
Prof. Fabio Mammano is the Director of the CNR Institute of Cell Biology and Neurobiology, which hosts the EMMA-INFRAFRONTIER and new Mouse Clinic facilities at Monterotondo.
