Questions for discussion:

Mouse versus rat models: pros and cons

  • Non-rodent models
  • Models of chronic liver disease & liver fibrosis: how to generate them? Which model should I choose?
  • Models of biliary diseases: How well do they mimic the human disease?
  • Models of NAFLD & NASH: Is there any good model? Which should I use?
  • Possible bias due to gender, age and genetic background. Do they really matter?
