Animal models of human diseases are a crucial part of medicine and biological research. Animal models are developed to closely mimic a pathological condition or disease process in humans for the purpose of studying more closely that specific disease or to predict the clinical outcome of a novel therapeutic. It is important to collect physical observations and biological samples to help with characterization and validation. Biological samples can then be further tested using in vitro analyses, which include Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and H&E stains. This webinar will highlight how IHC and H&E stains are utilized in animal model characterization and validation.
