INFRAFRONTIER is The European Research Infrastructure for Modelling Human Diseases

We contribute to human health by advancing disease prevention and therapies through appropriate models


On March 15th, our host server provider suffered a cyberattack, forcing it to restrict access to our website for security reasons. Since then, we have been working tirelessly to recover its functionality to offer you all our services and content again.

For the time being, this webpage will allow us to stay in touch with you and give you access to all the functionalities that we will gradually restore. Notice that links are temporarily disabled.

Currently, you can reach us via info-infrafrontier[@]

We thank you for your patience and understanding. We will be up and running as soon as possible!


EMMA services

Currently, you can find a list of EMMA strains on our partner’s website, the International Mouse Strain Resource (IMSR):

For ordering strains and making inquiries, please directly contact us via emma-infrafrontier[@]


The INFRAFRONTIER consortium consists of more than 20 leading biomedical research institutes in 15 countries working together to understand basic mammalian gene function and model human diseases.


The European Mouse Mutant Archive – EMMA is a non-profit repository for the collection, archiving (via cryopreservation) and distribution of relevant mutant mouse strains essential for basic biomedical research.


In addition to EMMA, INFRAFRONTIER offers other services like axenic derivation, access to open calls and systemic phenotyping.
