Working with Mouse Models for Huntington’s Disease: Insights on Model Selection and Experimental Best Practices

Webinar - The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, US

Many different mouse models have been created for Huntington’s disease research and development. Based on your research focus, choice of the model(s) to use is important and should be given thorough consideration. Furthermore, following specific guidelines to ensure quality control of the mouse models is important in generating robust and reproducible results. Join us as we discuss:

Common and emerging mouse models for Huntington’s disease research

Quality control critera and recommended best practices for using HD mouse models in research

Model peculiarities, pitfalls, and considerations

Best practices for using HD mouse models to test compound efficacy
