1:00 PM ET (Convert this time to your time zone)

Mouse strains with varying degrees of immunodeficiency are powerful tools for modeling human disease. In this webinar, we will highlight the most widely used immunodeficient models and discuss important considerations for selecting the most appropriate one. Join us to learn about the following topics:

  • The varying degrees of immunodeficiency in common mouse models
  • Benefits and limitations of nude, scid, and Rag1-null mice
  • Recent advancements using the most versatile NOD scid gamma (NSG™) strain
  • Innovations for studying human cancer made possible by the NSG™ strain
  • Model considerations for generating “humanized” immune system mice
