NSG™ and NSG™-SGM3 Mice engrafted with human hematopoetic stem cells represent powerful tools for studying oncology, infectious disease, and hematopoiesis and are helping accelerate the development of novel therapies.
NSG™ mice are a proven host for engraftment of human tumors or establishment of human immunity following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. This guide explains why the interactions between human immune cells and tumors are paramount when devising treatment strategies that prevent tumor evasion of immune cells and improve cytotoxic responses.
Genome editing with CRISPR/Cas9 enables the generation of new mouse models with unprecedented speed and simplicity. The Jackson Laboratory was an early adopter of CRISPR/Cas9 technology for mouse model development, and in this brief guide we describe the technology and lessons learned to generate knockouts and knockins in more than a dozen different genetic backgrounds.
This webinar highlights recent advances and future directions using xenografted humanized NSG™ mice with functional human immune cells, to evaluate cancer immunotherapies.
