Immunodeficient and Humanized Models for Oncology Research
Immunodeficient mouse models have been a popular choice among researchers for the past few decades. The level of immunodeficiency required for successful studies depends on several factors. An emerging trend is the increasing use of specialized models with human immune systems, or "humanized mouse models."
This seminar will examine immunodeficient and humanized models used in oncology research, humanized in vivo models for drug development, and the use of NCI models to get the most out of your budget.
