The development of animal models of human disease has been crucial in elucidating normal organ biology and pathogenic mechanisms leading to disease states, and in the development of new therapeutic strategies to modify disease. This unit provides an overview of various animal models used in the study of human disease and the factors that need to be considered when selecting a suitable animal model appropriate for the disease under investigation.
