Webinar - The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME, United States
The immune deficient NOD scid gamma (NSG) mouse strain enables human disease research that was previously impossible. In this webinar, we will explain how NSG mice increase the efficiency and sophistication of mouse models of human disease in many critically important therapeutic areas. Join us as we discuss using NSG mice to:
Create In Vivo models which support the growth and integrity of the widest range of humans cells and tissues
Conduct advanced preclinical testing using the JAX® Patient-Derived Xenograft (PDX) resource of solid and hematological cancers
Perform the most efficient and reliable engraftment of human hematopoietic cells to date ("humanization")
Provide a platform for novel transgenic and gene targeted mouse strains that further supports the growth and function of human tissues In Vivo
Presenter: Dolores Garcia De Van Aken Ph.D., Technical Information Scientist
Moderator: Brian Soper Ph.D., Technical Information Scientist
