Rodent Models

Learn more about our thoroughly characterized and validated models of CNS diseases

We have a range of transgenic and inducible models readily available for your studies. Our team of animal model scientists will work with you to find the right model.

Staining used to highlight areas of neuronal degeneration or the presence of inclusions characteristic of the disease within the nervous system tissue
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

TDP-43 mouse models with cytoplasmic aggregates, motor dysfunction, neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation, and neuromuscular changes.

Alzheimer’s Disease - IHC staining
Alzheimer's Disease

β-amyloid and tau models with progressive pathologic changes in a well-defined spatiotemporal pattern.

Multiple Sclerosis - a histological section of neural tissue stained to show cellular and structural details
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

EAE, cuprizone, and other models that recapitulate the autoimmune inflammation, demyelination & remyelination, and neurodegeneration aspects of human disease.

Parkinson's Disease - IHC staining
Parkinson's Disease

α-synuclein preformed fibril (PFF) seeding & spreading models recapitulating different aspects of Parkinson's disease.

Our Services

We provide a range of specialized research services tailored to models of CNS diseases

End-to-end services from model generation to in-life testing to quantitative tissue & fluid biomarkers.

Animal Services

Animal Services

Our animal services team are experts in dosing via multiple routes of administration, stereotaxic surgical procedures, and fluid & tissue collection.

Behavioral Testing

Behavioral Testing

We use specific, validated tests that are sensitive to response to therapy in our CNS rodent models.

Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology

We use well-established, in vivo electrophysiological measures to evaluate motor and sensory function.

Fluid & Cellular Biomarkers

Fluid & Cellular Biomarkers

We can measure clinically translational biomarkers, such as neurofilament light, in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). We can also perform cellular immunophenotyping on a range of tissues, including brain, spinal cord, lymph nodes, and spleen.

Histology & Tissue Analysis

Histology & Tissue Analysis

We have a state-of-the-art histopathology facility specializing in tissues collected from rodent models of neurological diseases.

In Vivo Imaging

In Vivo Imaging

We use preclinical MRI, PET, and CT scanners, coupled with our advanced image processing & analysis techniques, to non-invasively measure changes in brain & muscle structure (e.g. atrophy) and function (e.g. metabolism, blood flow).
