Swine models for preclinical research of human diseases
Founded in 2008, at Exemplar Genetics we enable discovery by providing the vehicle to break new ground on the medical research frontier.
We develop specialized miniature swine models that are genetically engineered to exhibit a wide variety of human disease states, to provide a more accurate platform to test the efficacy of new medications and devices.
Until now, researchers have lacked animal models that faithfully represent human diseases. As a result, a sizeable barrier has blocked progress in the discovery of human disease mechanisms; novel diagnostics, procedures, devices, prevention strategies and therapeutics; and the ability to predict in humans the efficacy of those next-generation procedures, devices, and therapeutics.
Through the use of rAAV gene targeting and somatic cell nuclear transfer, our AAALAC facilities offer the following services:
- Standard models
- Custom models
- Non-GLP clinical research
