Webinar Description:

To facilitate immuno-oncology drug discovery, researchers have established the first humanized mouse model of tumor growth in which the tumor, bone microenvironment, and immune system are combined as a functional entity. The ability to investigate cross-talk between these three systems is essential for the development of novel strategies in the treatment of bone metastases of tumor and preventing solid tumors from spreading into bone marrow.

Learning Objectives:

  • Bone metastasis and how to model it
  • How the humanized mouse models can be utilized in bone metastasis research – and what is the advantage of using them
  • Example of breast cancer growth in bone of humanized mouse
  • What to take into consideration when planning a study using immunomodulators in cancer and/or bone metastasis
