Genetically engineered animals remain essential for gaining proper understanding of human disease mechanisms and play an important role in a variety of research areas.

For your reference, we now briefly summarize several recent publications from researchers using custom genetically modified models for a broad range of human disease studies, including neurological disorders, inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular disease, oncology, immunology, and kidney disease.
