An exciting new ultra immunodeficient mouse model

By Sheri Wildt

Mouse models are powerful in vivo systems that play an important role in biomedical research. In recent years, there has been growing interest in the use of immunodeficient mice for a wide variety of applications, including immunology, infectious diseases, autoimmunity, and cancer. Mice with compromised immune systems are invaluable tools that not only provide critical insight into genes essential for immune function, but when combined with the transplantation of human cells or tissues, they also have enormous potential to provide scientists with relevant models of human disease.
