NASA/CASIS 'Rodent Research' flight patches

Each Rodent Research study has been launched and landed aboard SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft:

The Denver Post reports on how a local ground-breaking abstract artist was tapped to design the Rodent Research-4 patch.
...the siblings reunited on a project that is headed for space on Saturday. Melissa Kacena is currently in Cape Canaveral, Fla., prepping 40 mice for a trip to the International Space Station. They'll be studied as part of a bone recovery experiment. She tapped her brother to design the official patch for the team's space mission, the Rodent Research IV.

Based on the style, I am pretty sure that the R3 patch was designed by James White. He recently designed the "Rogue NASA" twitter account logo, too.

To my knowledge, there are no retail sources for these patches. Any that are available to collectors would be through secondary sales, based on distribution to the team's members.
