Pathobiology of the Mouse, Tier II A: Mouse as a Model for Mammary Gland Cancer
There are thousands of strains of genetically engineered mice (GEM) being used as models of human breast cancer. Many new research scientists are just beginning their careers in cancer research using GEM models. The objective of this course is to provide a solid foundation in history of research on the topic, anatomy and physiology of the developing and mature murine mammary gland, techniques for using the mouse as a model, neoplastic progression with an emphasis on the mammary gland, how to choose the appropriate GEM model for your research interests, how to examine a neoplastic stained section and what are the prototypic phenotypes of four commonly used GEM models.
