Murine Models of Gastrointestinal Tumors


The Jackson Laboratory EBC Website Vanderbilt University Medical Center


     In October 2010, a pathology review of rodent models of intestinal neoplasia was held at The Jackson Laboratory. One of the goals of the review session was to create a website that would act as a resource for investigators studying models of human colon cancer in rodents.

     Herein, we provide a high-resolution image slide box of the reviewed models. Ultimately, this website is meant to be a dynamic resource for anyone modeling colon cancer in rodents. If you have a peer-reviewed, published model that you would like to add to this site, please contact us!

     In addition, the results of the pathology review and the committee’s recommendations for tumor nomenclature can be found here.
