Animal Models of Infectious Disease


What services are provided?

The program provides a central resource for three types of services:

  1. Development and refinement of animal models
  2. In vivo screening
  3. Efficacy testing

Animal models include

  • Traditional small laboratory animals (e.g., mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, ferrets, chinchillas, and rabbits)
  • Non-human primates (e.g., macaques, marmosets, and tamarins)
  • Nontraditional animals, such as armadillos, woodchucks, snails and other invertebrates, goats, swine, horses, and cattle

Services are provided to study the full range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, and other agents such as toxins and prion proteins.

As appropriate, studies may be conducted in compliance with GLP (Good Laboratory Practice).

Note: Resources are limited and intended to fill critical gaps and are not to be the sole source of product development. Preliminary data to support program participation are required.
