Seminar: Innovative Mouse Models - from genetic engineering to tissue humanization

2013-11-1908:30 to 12:45 Lecture Hall Gard-aulan, Nobels väg 18 (Smittskyddsinstitutet), Karolinska Institutet, Solna campus

The development of sophisticated genetically modified mouse and rat models has aided biomedical research immensely. Moving beyond simple knockouts, newer models incorporate humanization of genes or even cells and tissues.

Learn more about the technologies used to make these advanced models as well as the growing applications in the areas of oncology, immunology, metabolism and vaccine development.

Scientific programme

Dr Megan MacBride, Taconic: Advanced Genetically Modified Models for Oncology and Immunology Research - from genetically humanized to tissue humanized models

Dr Adriano Flora, TaconicArtemis: Complex Modifications of the Mouse Genome; technologies and applications

Dr Martin Rottenberg, Karolinska Institutet, MTC: Humanized Mice as a Model to Study Human Immunity


The seminar is free of charge. Coffee is served in the morning, refreshments and lunch after the seminar.
