Animal Models

Dr. Steinkamp and Dr. Lagunita examine mouse images

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.
