SCID Pig Laboratory Renovation
From renowned research professor Dr. Christopher Tuggle, Iowa State University:
“The pig is known to be an excellent model for human biology due to its similar size, physiology and genetic make-up. This shows it has high potential as a model for many areas of testing in regenerative medicine, a new medical specialty that repairs disease instead of treating symptoms……A major challenge now is to figure out how to raise these pigs in extremely clean environments.”
bioBUBBLE clean environments can help researchers like those at Iowa State University raise pigs with immune deficiencies to test potential medical therapies.
