overview-humanized-mice-iconAnimal models have long been used to study the complex biological processes that underlie normal human physiology and disease. In particular, the mouse has become one of the most commonly used model organisms for biomedical research, discovery, and validation. However, the biological differences between mice and humans are limiting factors in the translation of many discoveries to the clinical setting. There is thus a growing need for animal models that more faithfully recapitulate important features of human biology.


Various methods have been developed to "humanize" mice, and these models are quickly becoming an essential tool for basic and applied research. This white paper will provide an introduction to one humanization method: engrafting human cells to recapitulate aspects of the human immune system.
