Animal Models for Human Diseases

This project aims to establish suitable animal models (e.g., mouse strains that develop osteoarthrosis, achalasia, etc.) for the study of human chronic diseases; to develop highly sensitive in vivo systems to evaluate carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, and teratogenicity of environmental and therapeutic agents; and to produce severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice for maintaining human organs and tissues. These model systems will be used to (a) perform pathological and genetic analyses; (b) conduct validation and demonstrative research for drug discovery and safety studies; (c) develop mouse strains that are reliable and easy to handle; and (d) promote education and training of researchers in these biomedical fields.

Research Outline

  • Development and management of mouse models that are suitable
    for drug discovery and safety studies.
  • Validation and demonstrative research.
  • Continued improvement of reliable mouse strains that can be handled easily
  • Education and training of participating researchers
