The mission of the Snyder Institute Mouse Phenomics Resource Laboratory is to assist researchers in the institute and related faculties and to foster collaborations to promote high quality, worldclass research by providing support for their own driven in vivo models of interest and by generating additional novel data through the development of new in vivo screens and murine models in the field of acute and chronic inflammation and related chronic diseases. Thereby contributing to their scientific success and enhance the Snyder Institute and faculties research effort.

Scientific Director, Res. Ass. Prof.
Dr. Björn Petri: Scientific Director of the Snyder Institute Mouse Phenomics Resource Laboratory since January 2011. Dr. Petri obtained his PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in Immunology/Cell Biology and Genetics from the Westfalian Wilhelms-University and the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Biomedicine in Münster, Germany. Before he started his studies in the field of Immunology Dr. Petri obtained his MSc (Diploma) in Zoology and Physiology at the Max-Planck-Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim and the Philipps-University in Marburg, Germany. He can look back at over 15 years of in vivo experience working with rodent models in the field of physiology and immunology.
Between 2007 and 2010 he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow (AHFMR/AIHS) in the Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases where he continued to strengthen his expertise in the field of Immunology and its related research models and imaging techniques.
Acute inflammatory screens in WT and KO mice:
Murine models of human chronic diseases in WT and KO mice:
Intravital and non-invasive whole body imaging techniques as screening tools.
