Humanized mouse models, where human tumor tissue is engrafted into immunodeficient mouse models, are now being used in oncology and infectious disease studies to provide valuable translational insight. In this webinar, our panel of experts will discuss the successes and caveats of using humanized mouse models to understand disease biology and evaluate therapeutic strategies. Topics to be covered include the use of humanized mice to study tumor biology and to evaluate therapies for infectious disease, including HIV. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are unique to their research.
