About Us

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.

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.

Our mission is editing genes and decoding life.

Our vision is to become the leader in the field of genetically modified animal models,helping people understand the life science and improving quality of life around the world.

Our values are Innovation, Dedication, Friendship and Responsibility.
