Webinar - The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME, United States
Mouse strains with varying degrees of immune deficiency are powerful tools for modeling human diseases. In this webinar, we will highlight the most commonly used immune deficient models and discuss important considerations for selecting the most appropriate model to support your individual research needs. Join us as we discuss the following topics:
The varying degrees of immune deficiency in commonly used mouse models
Benefits and limitations of nude, scid, and Rag1-null mice
Recent advancements using NOD-scid gamma (NSG) strain, the most versatile immune deficient model available
Innovations for studying and treating human cancer using the NSG strain
Model considerations for generating mice with a “humanized” immune system
Presenter: Peter Kelmenson, Technical Information Scientist
Moderator: Jim Yeadon Ph.D., Technical Information Scientist
