9h00 – 10h00             Selecting Immunodeficient Mice For Oncology & Immuno-Oncology Research

Immunodeficient mice are powerful tools for modelling cancer, but how does one go about choosing the most appropriate model for a specific study purpose? During our presentation we will review and highlight the key considerations including:

  • Selecting the most appropriate model and levels of immunodeficiency
  • Benefits and limitations of nude, SCID, and Rag-null mice
  • Applications and innovations using the versatile NOD scid gamma (NSG®) strain
  • Generating mouse models with a "humanised" immune system

Presenter:  Emmanuelle Campigna, PhD, Regional Manager Business Development, Spain & Portugal, Charles River

10h00 – 11h00              Biosecurity, Reproducibility, and "True Cost" – Determining Where to Acquire Animal Models

The global pandemic and its resulting implications have meant that research institutions around the globe have been re-evaluating how to best manage research animal colonies. For both researchers and facility teams, two common questions have arisen – when does it make sense to breed models in-house, and when is the best time to obtain them from a qualified vendor?
Join us as we cover the main considerations to aid your decision, including:

  • Biosecurity and animal welfare
  • The impact of breeding errors and genetic integrity
  • Arriving at a complete "true cost" analysis

Presenter:  Jean Cozzi, PhD, Innovation Manager, Genetically Engineered Models and Services Europe, Charles River

11h00 – 12h00              Roundtable (optional)
