The UNM Cancer Center Animal Models Shared Resource offers support for animal model development including subcutaneous and orthotopic xenograft and patient-derived xenograft preclinical studies. We provide technical services including xenograft injection/implantation, drug treatment, tumor monitoring, tumor burden quantification in longitudinal studies, necropsy, and consultations on model development, technical procedures, and animal pathology. We also provide in-house bred NOD scid gamma (NSG) immunodeficient mice to investigators for xenograft studies.
