Swine are the optimal model species for investigation of a large number of human diseases and have made valuable contributions to almost every field of human medicine. Swine share anatomic and physiologic characteristics with humans that make them ideal models for research. In addition, the anatomy and physiology make pig organs likely candidates for xenotransplantation.
The National Swine Resource and Research Center (NSRRC) was established in 2003 to develop the infrastructure to ensure that biomedical investigators across a variety of disciplines have access to critically needed swine models of human health and disease. The NSRRC will also serve as a central resource for reagents, creation of new genetically modified swine, and information and training related to use of swine models in biomedical research.

The NSRRC is funded by the following NIH Institutes; Division of Comparative Medicine, Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initatives, Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), Office of the Director, and NIAID and NHLBI.
