"Modeling Human Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach" 

Description: There are a variety of ways to study human cancer progression and test potential therapeutics using translational animal models. Choosing the right animal model is critical to transition preclinical success in mouse/rat studies to success in human patients. It is widely accepted that each animal model has advantages and disadvantages and in most cases a multidisciplinary approach is the best one. In this webinar we will define the criteria for a translational model, give a specific example of taking a multidisciplinary approach using breast cancer as an example, and then bring to light additional considerations when combining novel therapeutics with the current standards of care.   

Learning Objectives:

1. Intro to Biomodels and Overview of Translational Models

2. Taking a Multidisciplinary Approach to Preclinical Research Using Breast Cancer as an Example

3. 3D Vascular Imaging as a Terminal Endpoint
4. Modeling Efficacy with Toxicity
5. Additional Examples of Translational Models
