Strategies for Modeling Human Disease in the Laboratory Mouse

The National Laboratory Animal Center, in association with The Jackson Laboratory, will be sponsoring a 3-day short course on Strategies for Modeling Human Disease in the Laboratory Mouse, March 26-28, 2014 in Taipei, Taiwan.

There are thousands of mouse models to choose from – learn which are optimal for different applications and how can they best be utilized to advance your research objectives. An outstanding faculty of internationally-recognized scientists will discuss modeling of neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndromes and diabetes. The unique advantages and diverse uses of humanized mice for biomedical modeling will also be covered. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with the presenters and exchange ideas with other attendees in focused group discussions.

Scientists at all stages of their research careers are welcome. Those who are new to mouse research will have an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the experts, and those who are experts in their own right will gain new insights while networking with peers.
