Introduction to Humanized Mice for Cancer Immunotherapy
The mammalian immune system has developed surveillance mechanisms that can detect cancerous cells; however successful tumor cells have evolved strategies to evade detection. Current therapeutic strategies focus on improving cancer cell recognition and tumor elimination. Mouse models have been instrumental in the development of these therapies, including both immunocompetent and immunodeficient mice.

Predictive Cancer Models Using Patient-derived Xenograft Mice
Patient-derived xenograft (PDX) mouse models show great promise as predictive cancer models which recapitulate the heterogeneity of human cancer and are easily accessible to researchers. In this seminar, you will learn about the diversity, characterization, genetics, pathology, treatment response, and accessibility of PDX models.
