Diversity Outbred Mice Better Predict Potential Human Responses to Chemical Exposures

by National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
A genetically diverse mouse model is able to predict the range of response to chemical exposures that might be observed in human populations, researchers from the National Institutes of Health have found. Like humans, each Diversity Outbred mouse is genetically unique, and the extent of genetic variability among these mice is similar to the genetic variation seen among humans.

Funding Cuts Forcing Young Scientists into Other Careers

Unfortunately, stories of the negative impacts of funding cuts on scientific research are nothing new. However, one consequence not often focused on is how these cuts are forcing talented young scientists into other careers.
