Modeling infectious disease in the mouse: challenges and innovations

Modeling Human Infectious Diseases in the Mouse: Challenges and Innovations (8/14/2014)

In this webinar, we will explain how JAX inbred mouse strains can be used to model infection as well as treatment and prevention of human infectious diseases. 

In this webinar you will learn: 

• How to develop tuberculosis, anthrax, salmonella and influenza models in BALB/cJ, C57BL/6J and other inbred mouse strains 

• The promising future for vaccine development using inbred mouse models 

• The benefits and limitations of immunodeficient versus immunocompetent mouse models 

• Why genetically stabilized mouse strains from highest health status facilities ensure reproducibility and durability of results 

• How to use the Mouse Phenome Database to compare susceptibility of different JAX® Mice strains to infection
