Modeling Human Disease with Diet-Induced Obesity (DIO) Models and Resources
Tuesday, July 10, 1:00 PM (ET in US)
Inbred mouse models are powerful tools for studying the underlying mechanisms of and potential therapies for human metabolic disorders. Learn the applications and considerations for using diet-induced obesity (DIO) models for modeling aspects of human metabolic disease. Join us in this webinar as we discuss
· The advantages of using DIO models for metabolic disease research
· How inbred strain and substrain background can dramatically alter the development of obesity
· The characteristic features of DIO models, including disease onset, severity, and progression
· Environmental factors and husbandry strategies that stabilize phenotype
· Data from proof of principle preclinical efficacy studies using reference compounds
